[SOLVED]Why don't all user submitted package files appear w/in AUR web

[SOLVED]
Hi --

Just a general observation but one that could have me a lot of time.
I went looking for xe-guest-utilities package with recent Arch Installation

I found a package within the AUR listed here: https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/xe-guest-utilities/ but noticed this had been flagged out of date.   I examine the PKGBUILD and saw the sources it was referencing were no longer available

Doing some research about the package, I managed to compose my own PKGBUILD file.  After testing I wanted to submit it back to the AUR
In trying to follow the instructions listed here: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/AU … guidelines, I discovered there was already a package named - xe-guest-utilities-git within aur.archlinux.org (# Maintainer: Richard Schütz <rschuetz@uni-koblenz.de>).  I only found this out when trying to merge my repo with what I thought was an empty repo -- turned out someone had already submitted a package.

Sooo, in the interest of saving time, I'm wondering why the already created xe-guest-utilities-git PKGBUILD wasn't appearing within AUR website.  Does the AUR website pull from different repo than aur.archlinux.org?

It had been deleted and delisted from the web page.  But, the git archives still contain the files.

@ewaller

Ok so what is the recommended solution?  It the web page has been deleted and delisted -- why is it still in the archives?  Can I submit a new PKGBUILD for for this archive?  It seems I can not under the same name since its still in the git archives.

both `xe-guest-utilities` and `xe-guest-utilities-git` are orphan as far as I can tell. You just need to git-push on either of those. After that, you become the maintainer.

Kevdog, just do the same you would with a never-existed-before package : git clone the package as described in https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/AU … positories

make your changes and push them.
With deleted packages first one that pushes a new version becomes the maintainer.

Ok I pushed the repository.  I guess it takes sometime to show up AUR web page.

Re: [SOLVED]Why don't all user submitted package files appear w/in AUR web

@ewaller
That isn't my repo - mine is xe-guest-utilities-git

↳ git remote -v
origin	ssh://aur@aur.archlinux.org/xe-guest-utilities-git.git (fetch)
origin	ssh://aur@aur.archlinux.org/xe-guest-utilities-git.git (push)
origin	git@github.com:kevdogg/xe-guest-utilities-git (push)
↳ git remote show origin
* remote origin
  Fetch URL: ssh://aur@aur.archlinux.org/xe-guest-utilities-git.git
  Push  URL: ssh://aur@aur.archlinux.org/xe-guest-utilities-git.git
  Push  URL: git@github.com:kevdogg/xe-guest-utilities-git
  HEAD branch: master
  Remote branch:
    master tracked
  Local branch configured for 'git pull':
    master merges with remote master
  Local ref configured for 'git push':
    master pushes to master (up to date)
git ls-tree -r --name-only origin
.SRCINFO
PKGBUILD
xe-guest-utilities.service

Hmm for some reason my files didn't get pushed over to the aur remote. Argh

It doesn't look like your push was successful: https://aur.archlinux.org/cgit/aur.git/ … lities-git

Did you clone with the ssh://aur@... url into a new repository, then changed the PKGBUILD and .SRCINFO, and followed all other steps like git add, git commit and then git push like described in the wiki?
