Where did 'drive' (Google Drive CLI app) disappear to?

Hi all,

I use the 'drive' app, which seems to have disappeared from AUR all the sudden - I looked through the three AUR mailing lists, searched around, etc. - not seeing any deletion, merge or orphan requests. It's literally the top result when you Google "aur drive" and is still listed on the wiki and linked. Upstream is actively maintained, commits last made in August. A "drive-bin" exists but it's not the same package - anyone have a clue where this went, why it disappeared? I still use this app to sync, it works and is maintained.

Was: https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/drive/
Linked: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Li … on_clients

My installed package:

$ pacman -Qi drive
Name            : drive
Version         : 0.3.9.1-2
Description     : Pull or push Google Drive files
Architecture    : x86_64
URL             : http://github.com/odeke-em/drive
Licenses        : Apache
Groups          : None
Provides        : None
Depends On      : hicolor-icon-theme  gtk-update-icon-cache
Optional Deps   : None
Required By     : None
Optional For    : None
Conflicts With  : drive-git
Replaces        : None
Installed Size  : 19.93 MiB
Packager        : Unknown Packager
Build Date      : Sat 04 Feb 2017 07:32:12 AM CST
Install Date    : Sat 04 Feb 2017 07:32:21 AM CST
Install Reason  : Explicitly installed
Install Script  : No
Validated By    : None

Is there a way to get at the PKGBUILD source at this point? It appears "drive-git" was also deleted if I'm to believe the above output.

thx,
-te

Oops missed the part where you said there was a drive bin...

The git repository is still there. If you want to maintain the AUR package you can clone it, fix the PKGBUILD and .SRCINFO and publish it again to the AUR. I don't know why it was removed either.

Re: Where did 'drive' (Google Drive CLI app) disappear to?

Thanks! I had trouble finding the git repos - I've cloned both real quick (drive and drive-git) just in case. I do maintain a bunch of packages so it's not a problem, but it might make sense to wait a bit to see if someone pops by with a reason why they were both whacked.

The name listed in the git commits doesn't come up with any hits in Maintainer/Co-Maintainer searches in the webUI now, so it's possible he went scorched earth and deleted his account and all associated packages? Not sure how that's handled, not an AUR admin...

You'd need to check the aur-requests mailing list to find a deletion request I guess.

grepping the aur-requests archive has no results for drive-git and only unrelated results for drive.

Then maybe it was alad's fault. Darn those silly users of orphaned packages!
