The AUR package "owx" [1] does not build. I have attempted to contact
the maintainer in order to send a patch, but to no avail. Therefore, I
am interested in maintaining this package.

Thanks in advance,

Hello ur6lad,

The PKGBUILD in your owx package downloads the daily SVN snapshot
tarball, which changes daily (due to the name of the dir within it
having the current date); thus, the checksums change daily, and it is
impossible to build the package. I have created a patch (the email
attachment) to PKGBUILD, which checks out the current (as of now)
revision from SVN instead of downloading the snapshot (which would be
less reliable). In addition, it fixes a few trivial errors (regarding
Archlinux standards) and improves grammar.
