Hello all,

I am packaging devmem2, whose source is available at


The mentioned URLs in the comments do not load, and thus I have
left the URL field in the PKGBUILD blank. However, AUR will not let
me upload the package without a URL
exact error:

Package URL is missing a protocol (ie. http:// ,ftp://)

Should I just use of the 'broken' URLs for the URL variable?
