Hello, package maintainer here.

I’m grateful that Lorenzo cares about one of the packages I maintain,
but it also saddens me that I am receiving his report wrapped in an
orphan request. I am commited to keeping the eperiodique package in a
working state, but unfortunately I can’t fix issues that I haven’t
noticed myself. In this case I was’t aware of the broken dependency
because I am using efl-git which, unlike efl, provides elementary. Now
that I was made aware of the issue, I was able to fix it and push the
update to the AUR within just 5 minutes. Lorenzo, when you are reading
this, please report future issues you experience with any of my packages
in the comments section before submitting a request so I can fulfill my
job as maintainer; if I don’t respond in a reasonable amount of time you
are free to proceed as you wish.
