private AUR packages?

Are there private AUR packages, setup to not show up in searches?

Specifically: (redacted in case dev prefers it private) a bin package for: https://2ton.com.au/HeavyThing/

Playing around with the aur-sync 2.0 script in a virtual env, led me to it.



EDIT:

The package shows up in a google search, but not in the AUR search.

Re: private AUR packages?

When an AUR package is removed from the database its git repository remains.
https://lists.archlinux.org/pipermail/a … 24697.html shows both a heavything and a heavything-bin package being available and the deletion request denied for the heavything.
I can not see a later entry on the list for both removals.

No. The package search just does not filter for the pkgbase field. Google's search alogithms however crawl entire websites for keywords.
If you search the AUR for hnwatch, the actual name of the package, you'll find it.

Re: private AUR packages?

Thanks guys. So I it should be OK to give URL...

@ schard, I was referring to this package https://aur.archlinux.org/pkgbase/heavything-bin/

I was exploring the aur-sync script, and removed some rot13 stuff and running in bash -x to see what an undocumented option was doing. I think it's for testing.
The package was selected (randomly?) via aurgrep .+ | shuf -n 1 . This was last night, so perhaps something changed since then? I can't reproduce it to show that package being available today.

Re: private AUR packages?

That packagebase shows up just fine in a search on the aur web page.  It doesn't show up if you specifically search by package name/description for 'heavything-bin' as that is in neither the package name nor the description.

If your problem is with a given AUR helper not finding it, then first read the documentation to ensure you are using the tool properly, then check with the author of that helper if needed.

Re: private AUR packages?

That flag is an easter egg, it's purposely not documented.
