Hi all,

I'm maintaining hunspell-pl AUR package 
The problem with the package is that the maintainer of the source 
provides only the latest(daily) tarball snapshot. The md5sum of the 
tarball changes daily and the old files are removed.

The packages is very often marked as 'outdated' and I'm asked to update 
it, both via comments and email.
Some users propose to use dynamic values for pkgver= and md5sum=, but I 
think it's not a good way.

Current PKGBUILD is:
Proposed PKGBUILD:

What would you suggest to do? I think the best way would be to include 
the package in extra, but I'm not sure if it has enough votes.


Best regards
Maciej Sitarz
