[SOLVED] how to "revive" a package not in the AUR anymore?

Hi,

I'm having trouble figuring out how to do this. There's a package that's not in AUR anymore which I still use, so I downloaded the PKGBUILD, updated the PKGBUILD, tested that it works as expected, but the issue I have is when I try to git push it back to AUR and I get an error
`fatal: unable to access 'https://aur.archlinux.org/OMITTING-PKG-NAME.git/': The requested URL returned error: 403`

How do I do this? Do I need to contact the original maintainer of the package or what's the next step?

Thanks

EDIT: Why would you redact the package name?

If it was deleted, there's a reason. Blindly bringing it back is a bad idea. What package?

This is the package --> https://aur.archlinux.org/cgit/aur.git/ … p-appimage

@cfr I redacted the package name because I was asking a general question & did not believe the package name was relevant.

@Scimmia It appears that it was deleted because of a false claim that "it updates itself" (https://lists.archlinux.org/archives/li … 32DERANNZ/) when it really does not do that at all.

I've already updated the PKGBUILD to the latest version and have no problem maintaining this package - I just don't know how to become this package's new maintainer or how to "revive" it.

Whoever submitted this for deletion isn't running this package on their system, as it does not "update itself".

Can someone point me in the correct direction so that I can un-delete & update this deleted package?

Well your problem is that you're trying to push over https, you have to use ssh as covered by cfr's first link.

Thank you. I updated the .git/config to reflect that and was able to push the new version to AUR.
