I succeeded to build kbear-2.1-1 (a graphical ftp client for KDE) and then install the package. Kbear is a powerful tool:
How do I submit the package and PKGBUILD file to Arch Linux? In AL's documentation I read the below annoncement but cannot login.
New packages can be uploaded to ftp.archlinux.org/incoming. Note the following before submitting any packages:
1. All packages should come with the package build script (PKGBUILD).
2. Please add a comment line to the top of your PKGBUILD file that follows this format:
# Contributor: Your Name <your.email>
3. When a package is received it will be assigned to a package maintainer, who will inspect it to make sure it follows these guidelines. If they have any questions, the maintainer will email you for clarification.
Note: I tried earlier to build it (kbear) but not possible until kde-3.1-1 was released.
make a kbear directory. then place thge PKGBUILD. filelist, and the built package. then tar zip or bz2 zip up the directory then upload it to /incoming.
I am not your friend
Sorry guys n' gals, I've disabled MKDIR access on the ftp server to try and discourage all the warez drops that have been plaguing sarah31 lately. You can still upload files, but only to the /incoming directory, no subdirs.
To get the package submitted, this is what I did (for those who are new in submitting packages, like me).
Upload to /incoming
To make a tarball (gzipped tar file with PKGBUILD, filelist and built package):
tar -czvf kbear-2.1-1.tar.gz kbear
