This fork seems to have been discontinued since 2019.

Upstream version is newer, at least the master branch has newer commits:

Hi Alex, there seems to be a problem when I attempt to install:

==> Starting build()...
CMake Error: The source directory "/home/user/.cache/yay/active-data/src/active-data" does not exist.
Specify --help for usage, or press the help button on the CMake GUI.
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in build().
 -> error making: active-data

I found out that in the "build"-section you need to add the version, i.e. use the latter:

#cmake ${srcdir}/active-data
cmake ${srcdir}/active-data-v${pkgver}

Furthermore, it seems you're also missing a dependency, i.e. I/we need the package that provides "tbb/tbb_stddef.h":

-- Active Data VERSION_MAJOR:
-- Active Data VERSION_MINOR:
-- Active Data VERSION_PATCH:
CMake Error at cmake/FindTBB.cmake:400 (file):
  file STRINGS file "/usr/include/tbb/tbb_stddef.h" cannot be read.
Call Stack (most recent call first):
  CMakeLists.txt:67 (find_package)

UPDATE: The reason according to seems to be that "TBB does not have tbb_stddef.h anymore".

Having digged some more around, I can see this haven't been updated since 2019 and the code doesn't work anymore because TBB has changed. I'm considering to mark this package as out-of-date, because it doesn't work and won't work until updated... I think I'll do that and save the next person 1 hour or more, attempting to make this work
