Is it a feature request @Xavion and not a maintenance issue you are mentioning? Feel free to submit an issue here or fork agetpkg:

It would be good to have the creation/upload date listed next to each entry in the list. If I want to roll back to a package I know I installed two Saturdays ago (but don't remember the version number), I have to go by its date-stamp.

Thank you so much Scimmia for the explanation. Fixed. I better understand how AUR works with Git.

When you run makepkg, it runs the pkgver function and sets the pkgver variable to that. Right now, the pkgver function is returning "v2.r0.g....". You are then changing the pkgver variable manually to "2", and since "v" is less than "2", users will always see that there is an upgrade. You need to remove the leading "v" in the pkgver function so that the variable is set correctly.

It seems I didn't understand what you wanted. Which lines of the PKGBUILD should I change to avoid "being pestered for an upgrade"? Could you give me the replacement lines? Thanks I removed the agetpkg script from the AUR git repo btw.

Why did you just screw up the pkgver variable?

Scimmia commented on 2016-02-24 15:12 (UTC)

HLFH, you need to remove the leading "v" from the pkgver. You should also remove the "agetpkg" script from the AUR git repo, it makes no sense to have it here.

Package versions are messed up somewhere. After installing I am being pestered for an upgrade. agetpkg-git v2.r0.g56f5023-1 > 0-1

It worked for me. But I updated to your improved PKGBUILD.
