behind firewall, need an alternative to abs or a way to change ports

I've read just about everything regarding not being able to run abs.  I am behind a dorm firewall, I tried fixing my resolv.conf and also tried 'abs -t'.  Running ABS fails every time.

Is there a manual way to get what ABS pulls in?  Or perhaps a way to run it on a port that isn't blocked by my firewall?

Purpose of abs, for you?

Single PKGBUILDs you can just use wget (or use something like pbget to help).

To mirror the whole PKGBUILD structure... I think there was a git mirror of abs you could use.

Re: behind firewall, need an alternative to abs or a way to change ports

I enjoy the ports-like to keep more and more packages up to date that I build from source.  Things like dwm for instance.  I can see that abs uses rsyc to pull in the tree...is there a way to modify that line or a command that allows me to pull in the tree into the same place that abs does?

If its git - I suppose I would git clone the tree right?  I just don't want to miss doing something that abs does when it pulls the data via rsync.

Once i have the PKGBUILD structure I'd also like to keep maintaining it up to date like ABS does.

Read the source, and patches welcome. rsync can't be run behind a firewall unless you have an intervening server under your control to do port forwarding for you. I've tried (am also stuck behind a non-rsyncable firewall).

Do your homework, you've obviously not even started looking for this.
