AUR request for stardict-tr-2011

Hello, first time submitter here.

I've packaged TLA's dictionary in stardict format and I'd like this to be my first contribution here.

PKGBUILD can be found in https://github.com/kunamech/stardict-co … ct-tr-2011

And here is the build process on my side.

Re: AUR request for stardict-tr-2011

Why is the license listed as public domain?  The upstream url indicates that it is GPL3.

I forgot to change the upstream. It should be updated now.

Re: AUR request for stardict-tr-2011

Okay, but that still has a license and isn't public domain.  Given that you are the author, the PKGBUILD would suggest at an intent to waive copyright rights, but this is at odds with an explicit copyright and license in the github repo.  Also note that apparently public domain has limited-to-no meaning in some jurisdictions.  The DWTFYW license is pretty clear, and if that's your intent, just use that: note that this differs from public domain in at least 2 ways, 1) you maintain copyright / IP ownership, and 2) you impose a restriction on redistribution of modified versions that they must have a different name.

The license also should be installed under /usr/share/licenses/

I've Made the changes in both LICENSE of repository and the installation process. Thanks for the feedbacks.

Re: AUR request for stardict-tr-2011

Looks great now - sorry if I sounded a bit nit-picky, I have a bit of a hang-up with licensing issues, not in the sense of advocating for any particular license, but just for clarity for the end-users.

I'm not familiar with the output from the package compression stage about non-utf8 path names, but it appears all the files are still properly contained in and installed with the package.
