polyzen, yes, you are correct. It looks like this is common. Shame to admit, I'm using aur for so long and I've noticed this just now :). Sorry about the noise.

hiciu, this is common usage:

pkgver() function will set pkgver field to something like this:


There is a "g" before git hash. So for example this version:

means that alacritty has been built from revision 471237d. This can be confusing, because "g" at the beginning could be mistaken for part of a git hash. I'm not sure if this should considered a problem - just reporting, because I spent last few minutes looking for revision g471237d in git repo :).

@maandree You should use makechrootpkg to build it.

The home directory of my package building user is /var/empty. Why is it writting to my home directory rather than a temporary directory?

oops, makedepends must be global.

@timofonic Why? What's the problem with you?

@quininer Can you please fix dependencies on this package? As it is now, I consider this package both broken and outdated.

Can we add rust as dependency as discussed here:

Rust is now official package in Community repo and it contains cargo too.

Maybe change makedepends=('cargo' 'cmake' 'git') to makedepends=('rust' 'cmake' 'git')?

@mmlb It should be in this package. I'll submit a merge request.
