There was github issue where developer suggested building from git source and not from branch tag, that is why all three sources point to git source rather then to tar.gz. Also some directory wrangling I do is because solbuild fetches single source, while zotero has three repositories. package.xml follows instructions available from official wiki

You can see from url above zotero build process is non standard. I'm occasionally experiencing npm build hiccups locally, but previously I blamed my metered internet connection. Now I see npm build stalls at random, non-deterministically, and this adds burden to maintainers. I'd like this package to require smallest amount of effort for maintainers and myself. I see these options (from most favored to least)

  • go arch way, repackage binary tar.gz rather then building from source
  • do nothing, Keep fingers crossed upstream will fix their build process (or their instructions, or their scripts)
  • drop package
