Okay, since the 1.3 prereleases are obviously not working well, I moved it back to 1.2.14 from Debian's GitHub mirror instead of Debian's regular place.

Just to be clear, this package should not be used to replace pacman in any way.

m3thodic: I get to the apt-man section and it fails.

This PKGBUILD succeeds in building apt with their new cmake build setup

I did update the package to 1.3~rc2 and didn't test it then noticed that cmake is now used, so I'm in the process of changing this so that it will work. Sorry for this...

pacman will consider 1.3~pre2 to be a newer version than 1.3, this would make updating the package difficult in the future. See the "vercmp" utility for testing version comparisons.

As a workaround, pacman understands 1.3pre2 as an older version than 1.3, and you might want to change to that.

Hi guys!
Source of package (1.2.14) is outdated, it's not avaliable now.
So, yaourt can't make package (error 404)
When i tried to change source link in PKGBUILD, makepkg says that checksums do not match.
Sorry for my English!
And, I'm newbie here, so maybe I do something wrong. :(
Thanks!

monochromec: That's a good thing to talk to upstream about. This package builds fine and runs as expected (I can still build things against the library). The "missing" localization files is a minor thing and all goes well in the end. Since v1.3 is still in the prerelease stage, I'm not going to upgrade this to that version and I have therefore unflagged the package.

This package builds on a clean Arch system and is in no need of changing.

In case you come across coopstah13 observation in version 2.1.14 of the package wrt to the missing language subdirectories in doc, simply add the following
line to the PKGBUILD:

sed -i -e 's|for dir in en $(dir $(DOCDIRLIST))|for dir in en|' doc/makefile

before the configure invocation in build(). This will remove the additional languages from the makefile creation process and only build the English one.

ProfessorKaos64: Just mark it out-of-date and I'll take care of it.
