I am sorry to bump this thread but it seems like my request escaped
everyone's eyes last time. I brought this up in the IRC channel
yesterday and some people suggested me just to bump it. So..
To recap, all eclipse-dltk-* packages from emphire are out-of-date:
NOTE 1: DLTK Stable 3.0.1 was released on August 26, 2011:
NOTE 2: emphire doesn't seem to respond to user requests since 30th June:
NOTE 3: I do maintain some eclipse/related packages, and I am interested
to 1) adopt, 2) update and 3) keep maintaining/updating in sync with
@ emphire: Please disown these eclipse/dltk packages for now. If I adopt
your packages, I promise, I will give these back to you as soon as you
get back to AUR and ask me.
