First of all I just want to say that I have 58 packages on AUR and most
of the PKGBUILDs (written by me) were written before I knew some of
this. I tried to update most of them but as it's a really monotonous
task, I missed some things. Eli, thanks for pointing them out.
Also, most of these packages were orphan and I adopted them, I did not
fix some of the mistakes right away because I didn't know these were
indeed mistakes. With the time I learned about them but I didn't fix
some of the packages because I have a lot of them. I have been fixing
them as people point it out or when the PKGBUILD needs to be manually
updated. Lately I have been making an effort to fix everything but
apparently it wasn't enough.

Thank you!

This was fixed by commit 4a4273f72a93824a16a2c1e86308986b26d9df54[1]
which is dated to 11 days ago so I don't understand.

The package installs the 64bit libraries in 'lib64' and 32bit ones in
'lib'. I am not comfortable enough to edit the CMakeLists file but if
anyone wants to submit a patch, I would be happy to accept it :)

That was fixed in commit e28ca199c321913aec5295650fa34e0b3c4d81cc[2]
which, again, dates to 11 days ago.

I will fix this in one of the next few days.

Sorry about that. Fixed.

This package is broken and needs to be fixed in the upstream repository.
I haven't fixed any of this issues because that. Once we are able to
properly built the project, I will fix the whole PKGBUILD.

Same story, e9488cd4afbe1eb2356a2ab32d85ba5f58f41049[3]

Already fixed that.

I will fix this later.

Quotes fixed on commit b00815f18db26d304d981b420fdc28ea2a5f050f[4].

Oh my god, this guiidelines are extremely wrong. Npm uses symlinks by
default. If you follow this guidelines,
"$pkgdir"/usr/lib/node_modules/module_name will be symlinked to

A correct approach would be:


package() {
  npm install -g --user root --prefix "$pkgdir"/usr

Already fixed.

Sorry about that, fixed.

Google hasn't released the source yet afaik. I will rename the package
as -bin. Fixed the license issue.

Fixed the license issue. I will rename the package as -bin as I don't
whish to rebuild the modules.

Thank you,
