Betreff: Re: [aur-requests] [PRQ#2585] Merge Request for upower-pm-utils
Datum: Sun, 08 Mar 2015 22:07:15 +0100
thanks for the response, naming is just one point.
If users try to replace systemd, they will likely search on the net for
upower or pm-utils( removed support in upower-0.99), and not for
Let me explain the technical side, the user who filed the request seems
a bit clueless.
His complaint was, that my package does not depend on udev. Well, that
is right, I am free to provide my own depends on AUR. There is no
guideline for that, and note, my packages are not manjaro specific. They
work exactly the same on arch from aur and do not need any specific
Now, what is the point of having a udev depend?
Except for systemd, eudev is the only alternative for udev on AUR.
Since systemd is great and doesn't need any pm-utils, and tlp conflicts
with pm-utils, there is no point at all to change my depends. i provide
the eudev package too which is the depend of complaint.

I would protest a deletion, since I regard the package name better and
more specific than "nosystemd". It is simply a service to the arch
community to upload these packages also to AUR, no matter they are
also used by manjaro. I won't start to maintain two versions of the
same package just for sake of naming issue. Same PKGBUILDS are used in
our binary repos.
Anyway, if you delete this package, please delete all my packages and
I am done with AUR.

Currently one package  depends on it. I've left a comment.
About this package deletion. I think that we are free to remove
are uploaded to provide Manjaro compatibility according to the idea
is _Arch_ repository, not Arch-based one. And to provide compatibility
users should use own repository.
