@fusion809, if you don't have the tools to properly maintain the package(s) please consider orphaning the package or recruiting a co-maintainer that does have the tools.

@jamincollins I would if I still had an Arch Linux system to do this on. I can still do routine maintenance (like bumping package versions, making adjustments to the PKGBUILD, etc.) on my AUR packages but I can't do what you're mentioning as I don't have the tools to build.

The following changes correct this:

Please consider testing new package versions by building them in a clean chroot[1], with something like the following:

mkarchroot ${BUILD_CHROOT}/root base-devel

@cRaZy-bisCuiT git packages shouldn't be flagged as out of date because they are automatically updated to the latest version whenever you build them!

@Imat, never heard of it. Guessin' it clones the repo with only the top-level contents? If it omits any part of the repo's contents my guess is no. Most git repos try to only include vital components, so if you strip anything from them it will likely lead to problems.

Is it possible to use a shallow clone? (git clone --depth 1; or whatever)
