Kopia is Out of Date in AUR

Just reporting, in case someone knows how to contact who maintains the repos.
I found a package out of date. I know it is not EOS issue.

:: Searching AUR for updates...
 -> Flagged Out Of Date AUR Packages:  kopia
 there is nothing to do

I have kopia-bin installed which is 0.12.1-1. So, no problem here.

It’s already been flagged, that is the procedure for alerting a package maintainer that it’s out of date.


And anyone can do it directly. No need to report here.

This warning message means “Someone has notified the maintainer that the package is out of date by flagging it”

Also, that is in AUR, not the repos.


I am on the “non bin” (0.11.3-1), I assume it is supposed to be a bit more stable.
I don’t mind installing the bin for kopia or any other if it is stab;e enough.

Unfortunately it has been a few days.
Let’s wait and see.

I do not have an account with Arch.
So, if it is a;ready reported/flagged as @Stagger_Lee and @dalto mentioned so it is reported already.
I did not know that this message means the maintainer has been notified.

Sorry, my bad.

There is no basis for this assumption.

The suffix -bin simply means it was compiled by someone else and it is distributed as a binary executable. There is no simple correlation to “stability” whatever that word means in this context.

You should mark @Stagger_Lee’s post as the solution.
