[aur-requests] Dear all,

Today, I wanted to help someone on an AUR package.


This person was very unpleasant, telling me to "f*** off", as you can see
in the comments.

The guy forces a ssh clone of the github sources, which is in my opinion
not great, because a ssh clone forces users to be authenticated on GitHub,
while an AUR package shouldn't force users to be authenticated, it should
be always cloning using public https repositories.

(I'm surprised that this is not a rule on the Wiki page of AUR :

So, anyway, the guy just has this repository, not respecting "conventional"
name for icon themes (they usually are named: nameofthetheme-icon-theme ),
not respecting the convention that as it retrieves the latest version
always, it should end with -git
and moreover, not respecting users (and me).

I want to ask if it's okay that I push my fixed version of the package.
Also, what can we do against this package/user ?

Thanks in advance.
Best regards,
