Extended ices0 v0.4.7: Find an AUR maintainer?

Hi everyone,

I’ve enhanced the "old" ices0 a lot (adding ReplayGain, UTF-8, and lots of other stuff), see https://github.com/Moonbase59/ices0.

I’d like Arch and Arch-based Linux users to easily access this using the AUR, so I wonder how to proceed in this case?

I already tried to flag the existing ices 0.4-1 package as outdated but there was no response.

Would anyone care to maintain this, because I wouldn’t know how?

Thanks for any help!

Then it's not (the original) ices0, but some fork. Give it a new name, like eices0 or xices0 (or whatever).
It's also unlikely that somebody else will want to maintain a software, that already exists from a fork with vaguely specified modifications.

Thanks for the input, would it be necessary to rename the GitHub repo plus the actual software?

Imho no. But the package's name should clarify that it's a fork, that the user is installing.

Slightly off topic but https://github.com/Moonbase59/ices0 only starts at v0.4.6 rather than importing v0.4.0 from the xiph svn
then applying ices-cc v0.4.1,  v0.4.2 and v0.4.3 as commits from https://centova.com/en/icescc tarballs as I could not find a VCS for those releases
then your own commits on top of that without tracking generated files such as Makefile.in.

Helpful feedback, @schard & @loqs, thanks! I see there’s still a lot to do … if only I had more time …
