Hello, Morgan! Nice to meet you. :)
Hi there, nice to see some one break the silence.
I think that might get some stones thrown at you... ;)
I was fearing I might catch a little bit of flak on that. But as long as I don't pull a cower and shove it in community I should be fine :)
Indeed. There's even a special exception rule that bans pacman wrappers from ever making it into the repos. 🎉 
But I jest: You've put in a lot of great work and I appreciate not only your development of these tools but also your maintenance of their packages in the AUR/involvement with users. I think this is an interesting conundrum, because it's clear that you *do* know this inside out, but there are relatively few packages to review on your account! What I see seems well-written and I'm confident in your capabilities of keeping up with everything.
Thanks. I do realize the amount of packages I maintain on the AUR is rather small. I blame every one else for beating me to the punch on things :P
Some notes on those you have:
A user mentioned a 404, you should probably fix it
The whole repo is gone. I still need to figure out where it went...
You seem to have rewritten yaourt's pacdiffviewer, but included no documentation - in particular what it does over the original while requiring rust and a fixed version of pacman.
The name just happens to be the same as yaourts binary. It's not meant to be related. There's a --help page which is good enough really.
The pacman -T lines (also for pacdiffviewer) looks pretty strange. I guess rust has no ifdefs.
Sure there are ifdefs. This is how I'm saying what ifdefs are defined. This is the same as adding -Dpacman-git=true in configure.
My only nitpick would be on a recent comment in the AUR . I know it's mostly in jest but I think it's important that users *are* trusted (to a reasonable point, I'm not saying to take everything at their word...). I know there are the occasional... er... less-than-optimal users that do things like file deletion requests when their aur helper breaks or something, but it's important to keep a healthy community atmosphere. Many of the users are less technical and just need a gentle push in the right direction. And other users are great in providing insight/a second set of eyes.
Again, I'm only *nitpicking*; I think you've been great!
Yeah it was meant in jest (good ol PEBCAK) but I'll try to avoid such comments in future. (I have however may been slightly peeved because paru was wrongly flagged out of date 3 times that day).
With some packages - usually very popular ones - it gets pretty egregious, to the point TUs have to step in and warn people. It's still a good idea to keep a cool head at all times. (I should tell myself that...)
You make great bug reports! For example, https://bugs.archlinux.org/task/64208
Thanks, I absolutely hate bad bug reports so I try my best.
+1 on a great attitude. Thanks for applying!
Thanks for looking over my application!
