@witchymary Thanks, updated!

Bestsource2 bump and changes seem to have broken the PKGBUILD

@gourdcaptain Worked for me. Could you try to clean the build dir?

gourdcaptain commented on 2024-03-11 20:48 (UTC)

Failing for me with:

In file included from ../libaegisub/include/libaegisub/lua/utils.h:19,
                 from ../libaegisub/lua/utils.cpp:17:
../subprojects/luajit/src/lua.hpp:7:10: fatal error: luajit.h: No such file or directory
    7 | #include "luajit.h"
      |          ^~~~~~~~~~
compilation terminated.

I have the luajit package installed even outside of this, for reference.

@witchymary Thanks for the info, I updated the PKGBUILD!

Doesn't compile on the latest update since bestsource now requires libp2p as a submodule. Also, bestaudiosource can be removed from dependencies.

@MarsSeed I think I know where you come from, but I don't see the benefit. The only thing that would be different from this package is the name. And it's always possible to simply install aegisub-arch1t3cht-git.

Also, there has been at least some movement in the offical repo since 2019:

And I'm not sure if it makes sense to compare the offical repos with the AUR. Supporting multiple forks of a package (in this case Aegisub) in the offical repos does not seem to be a common thing. But in the AUR it is easy to have multiple packages for multiple forks. That's also why I prefer the separation of forks: so the user can choose which fork (or the official version) they want to use.

But I concede that there is not much of a use if the other forks aren't buildable or work, and I don't have a solution for that. I think it's just my personal preference to keep it explicit that this is the arch1t3cht fork, so that one doesn't have the wrong expectations.

Just my 2 cents. ^^

@Funami, the original Aegisub repository is abandoned since 2019 and the code is unbuildable.

Like I've mentioned, even the stable Arch repo aegisub package builds a release from @wangqr's fork (from July 2022 as of now).

But now the latter fork is also abandoned and broken. That's why I think it would be for everyone's benefit to make AUR/aegisub-git build from the only fork that is actively maintained and works.

Just my 2 cents. :)

Do you find at least some compelling points in my proposal?

Funami commented on 2023-11-03 19:13 (UTC)

@MarsSeed Thanks for the info, but I believe that aegisub-git should track the official Aegisub repository.

Hi, @Funami,

I'd like to point your attention to the aegisub-git package on AUR, which has just been disowned by @wangqr.

Yes, the main aegisub-git package on AUR was owned by the creator of the wangqr fork, but they never updated that package to use their fork.

And now it is obvious that that fork is abandoned since Nov 2022, and maintainer doesn't respond to issues at all.

The code is also unbuildable with current boost version.

As the owner of this git package, I'd like to suggest that you adopt aegisub-git and update it with the arch1t3cht fork.

Otherwise a dead git package has no usefulness whatsoever.

Arch repo still carries @wangqr's last aegisub release from July 2022, so people can still choose that one if they want.

Meanwhile, much more AUR users would benefit from getting access the the up-to-date arch1t3cht fork if it was served by AUR/aegisub-git, in my view.

What do you think about this?
