Contribute or help with package in core

Hi All,

Wasn't sure where to post this, but hopefully this is the right area.

I'm a long-time user and keen supporter of Arch. I'm also a core developer/maintainer of the Ethereum consensus client, Lighthouse (https://github.com/sigp/lighthouse).

I've noticed we have `go-ethereum` in the core repo. Since Ethereum underwent the merge a year ago, it is no longer possible (read useful) to run just an execution client such as `go-ethereum`. Thus, Arch user's must install packages from the AUR to properly run `go-ethereum`.

There is a community member updating a `lighthouse-ethereum` package in the AUR, but I think its currently out of date.

I'd be interested in helping out getting a `lighthouse-ethereum` package into core or at the very least help with the AUR package, if there is in interest in doing so.

I'm not familiar with the process/rules etc, just figured I'd offer as an Arch user and maintainer of the software.

Cheers

go-ethereum isn't in core, it's in extra. If it's no longer useful, why was there a new release just yesterday? If you're convinced it's useless, file a bug report.

Now for lighthouse-ethereum, you *think* ti's out of date? You're a core developer/maintainer and don't know if there's a new upstream version? If you want to help out with it, post in the comments with whatever changes it needs.

I think OP is saying it's useless on its own and that it's unusual/undesirable for a repo package to require an AUR package. But I don't know anything about Ethereum.

I think Ageyy means having an Ethereum execution client [1] in the repositories without an Ethereum consensus client [2] to make an Ethereum node [3] is not useful.
