Clementine removed from binary repo?


I noticed that clementine music player is not in the extra repo any more. Is it temporary? Buiding from AUR is long.

Probably not. The previous maintainer arojas AKA Antonio Rojas moved it to the AUR yesterday and orphaned it. Unless another Trusted User picks it up and proposes putting it back in the extra repo, it will stay in the AUR (or it might even be deleted).

Clementine last had a formal release in 2016, and looking at the commits at GitHub there is little activity apart from updated translations. It might be time to move on…
