[SOLVED] ? Contact to the maintainer of the "[levitating]" repository?


I have included the "[levitating]" unofficial Arch Linux repository in my `/etc/pacman.conf` as mentioned in the Arch wiki.

However, upstream has issues since a few days and I do not find any way to contact the maintainer, since the link goes to the same failing server.

And the associated OpenPGP-key has also no email adress listed, only the name "Serannian".

So I want to ask here if anyone knows about the maintainer and has a contact?

Here the issue I get with the repository:

From `pacman -Sy`:

error: failed retrieving file 'levitating.db' from : OpenSSL SSL_connect: SSL_ERROR_SYSCALL in connection to 
error: failed to synchronize all databases (unexpected error)

Accessing with firefox:

Secure Connection Failed

An error occurred during a connection to PR_END_OF_FILE_ERROR

Site is accessible again and the links are working .

There's currently nothing here.

Keys: gpg ssh

Links: irc blog

The irc link points to libera chat, try to ask there.

Disliking systemd intensely, but not satisfied with alternatives so focusing on taming systemd.

Solved; I could access the site via and get the OpenPGP-key from there, where I could find an email adress, upon writing there the author noticed that it's scripts stopped working.
