Already in the works. I'm in a testing version of it... need To bring bill-auger's good work with the searchengines over
and check for any other glitches, etc.

for some reason libremakepkg can not validate the upstream source-ball for v60.7.0 - if i check the signature with gpg, it is fine


Updated by freemor 11 months ago

The GPG signing key changed between last build and this,

I'll attach my WIP PKGBUILD. It builds but with problematic
search engines still in

You'll need to import the new key into your GPG keychain
