community/mythtv out of date & unmaintained

Hello,

I'm a mythtv user and I flagged this package since months. I've updated PKGBUILD for myself to the latest version, may I submit it in AUR ?

About Submitting packages to the AUR, The wiki says :
Check the AUR for the package. If it is currently maintained, changes can be submitted in a comment for the maintainer's attention. If it is unmaintained, the package can be adopted and updated as required. Do not create duplicate packages.

I can't adopt it, I'm not a arch developer nor a Trusted User.

There's already https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/mythtv-git/
Is your package different?

Yes, mine compiles the last official release (0.27.3), not HEAD of  branch fixes/0.27.
Configure options are the same that community/mythtv.
It is a drop-in replacement.

Ask on the arch-general mailing list what's up with the package.
If you want to maintain it (along with other packages that depend on it), maybe it's time to drop it to the AUR.

He wants to clear it with the devs first: https://mailman.archlinux.org/pipermail … 36869.html , but I guess he can post it here. Just don't upload it to the AUR just yet.


The package is an orphan, it has no maintainer.

Thanks !

But I also just notice the latest Mythtv package for archlinux was uploaded in the testing community repo.
So it won't be long till it will be available in the regular community repo.

For who can't wait:  check here
