Two Gedit 3 plugins packaged for Arch Linux

Simon Sapin,

I recently switched to Arch Linux and Gnome 3. This also means Gedit 3, which breaks all Gedit 2 plugins. The one I missed most was the Class Browser:

Luckily Source Code Browser does just the same for Gedit 3. I also started using Gedit Whitespace Terminator written by Guillaume Ayoub after he yelled too many times at me for committing code with trailing white-space into git ;)

Since I’m gonna need to install these more than once, I packaged both of them for Arch Linux’s AUR. Hopefully this will be useful for someone else.

I found packaging for Arch much easier than what I remember from my (failed) attempts at Debian packaging…
