Hi Mehdi,
Thank you very much for creating this mirror of the URxvt current source for me (and for those like me). Yes, I have downloaded the tarball from your mirror site, but prior to this I have already got this tarball with accompanied signature files, directly emailed me by Ralf (rxvt-unicode-9.26.tar.bz2 et al.).
Today I have rebuilt ($ makepkg -sirc) my favorite AUR package (Rxvt Unicode Better Wheel Scrolling) using the source tarball from Ralf email. But yours, Mehdi, is also the same - I have compared them both.)))) - Thank you!
$ ls -al ~/aur/build/rxvt-unicode-better-wheel-scrolling/
-rw-r--r-- 1  904950 Aug 30 19:27 rxvt-unicode-9.26.tar.bz2
-rw-r--r-- 1  901544 Aug 30 19:34 rxvt-unicode-better-wheel-scrolling-9.26-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.zst
And now I am again a happy user of the URxvt Better Wheel Scrolling terminal emu:
$ pacman -Qm
rxvt-unicode-better-wheel-scrolling 9.26-1
Thank you very much to all of you guys!
Kind regards,
Radislav (Radicchio) Golubtsov
