PKGBULID review request: vidiot bin

Hi, I'm making a pkgbuild for the Vidiot video editor but I have some concerns

The project page is https://sourceforge.net/projects/vidiot/

This is the pkgbuild I created.

pkgname=vidiot-bin
pkgver=0.3.35
pkgrel=1
pkgdesc="Non-linear video editor targeted for home video editing"
arch=('x86_64')
url="https://sourceforge.net/projects/vidiot"
depends=('ffmpeg>=4.2.2' 'portaudio>=19' 'gtk3>=3.24' 'boost-libs>=1.71')
license=('GPL3')
source=("$url/files/Vidiot-$pkgver-i386.tar.gz")
sha256sums=('b1ab02912f79cc95106fee82ba1784c94a22fd5716d633d37c1cda92f7d5c8ce')
provides=('vidiot')
conflicts=('vidiot')

package() {
	cd Vidiot-$pkgver-i386

	# install binary
	install -Dm755 bin/vidiot "$pkgdir"/usr/bin/vidiot

	# install launcher
	install -Dm755 share/applications/vidiot.desktop "$pkgdir"/usr/share/applications/vidiot.desktop

	# install icons
	for size in 16 32 48 128 256; do
		install -Dm644 share/icons/hicolor/${size}x$size/mimetypes/application-vidiot.png "$pkgdir"/usr/share/icons/hicolor/${size}x$size/mimetypes/application-vidiot.png
	done

	# install man page
	install -Dm644 share/man/man1/vidiot.1.gz "$pkgdir"/usr/share/man/man1/vidiot.1.gz

	# install mime package
	install -Dm644 share/mime/packages/vidiot.xml "$pkgdir"/usr/share/mime/packages/vidiot.xml

	# install application files
	find share/vidiot -type f -exec install -Dm644 "{}" "$pkgdir/usr/{}" \;

	mkdir "$pkgdir"/usr/lib
	# link older version of libboost to newest version
	ln -s /usr/lib/libboost_thread.so "$pkgdir"/usr/lib/libboost_thread.so.1.71.0
	ln -s /usr/lib/libboost_serialization.so "$pkgdir"/usr/lib/libboost_serialization.so.1.71.0
}

Now, the arch wiki says

Avoid using specific mirrors (e.g. on sourceforge) to download, as they might become unavailable

but is it still valid? Alternatively, I could download the source from osdn, but it would still be a "specific mirror"

Also, can you tell me if the workaround for libboost is allowed?

Thanks!!

Re: PKGBULID review request: vidiot bin

That PKGBUILD isn't downloading from a specific mirror, so the wiki quote doesn't apply. It's downloading from sourceforge, which then forwards you to a specific mirror, which is exactly what the wiki tells you to do.

No, that boost "workaround" is really, really bad and you should never consider doing it. If you have to have that specific version of boost, you need to install that specific version of boost. It's in the AUR, but unfortunately isn't in good shape and will cause more problems. Tell the maintainer to get rid of the conflicts/provides completely. Until it's co-installable with boost/boost-libs, don't try to use it.
