[SOLVED] '#' in url

This PKGBUILD has a '#' character in its URL field.  By quoting the value or \-escaping the character, I can get the local package field to include the correct URL, but if I submit this to AUR, either the URL displayed on the package page is truncated, or it breaks the parser and the following line (license) isn't recognised.  Here's the PKGBUILD:

# Maintainer: Joseph Lansdowne <J49137@gmail.com>
pkgname=ytsubs
pkgver=0.2.3
pkgrel=1
pkgdesc="Make an RSS feed from YouTube subscriptions"
arch=(any)
url='http://ikn.org.uk/Scripts#ytsubs'
license=(GPL3)
depends=(python2-gdata)
source=(http://ikn.org.uk/files/scripts/$pkgname)
md5sums=('aa1a4b8810a4630c0efb59863883a4d9')

package () {
    mkdir -p "$pkgdir/usr/bin/"
    install -m755 "$srcdir/$pkgname" "$pkgdir/usr/bin/"
}

%-encoding the character won't work - any ideas?

Re: [SOLVED] '#' in url

Sounds like an AUR bug to me.

He, who uses # in URL in the first place, should be banned from the internet.

Re: [SOLVED] '#' in url

I shouldn't use # for an anchor?

Re: [SOLVED] '#' in url

Don't worry, the URL is perfectly valid.

Re: [SOLVED] '#' in url

Maybe you can try URL encoding.. not sure if it'll work:

url="http://ikn.org.uk/Scripts%23ytsubs"

Edit: Nevermind, missed the last line of your post

My guess is that the AUR just parses everything between a hash and a newline as a comment.

Re: [SOLVED] '#' in url

Have you tried using an .AURINFO file?

Re: [SOLVED] '#' in url

Hmm.  I put a file .AURINFO next to PKGBUILD containing

url = http://ikn.org.uk/Scripts#ytsubs

and then ran makepkg -S.  I unpacked the resulting archive and it doesn't contain the .AURINFO file anywhere.

Re: [SOLVED] '#' in url

why would you expect it to? Either put it in the source array or tar it yourself.

Ah, of course.  That's worked perfectly; thanks.
