Adopted. PKGBUILD now uses cmake. Please report any issues here.

Thank you!

@dylan, I will do this today. Thank you. Generally, if I forget (I have so many projects, busy work life etc...), just flag the package out of date if that is all is wrong. If there isn't I probably should add a -git version to always track latest.

Any idea on when this package will be updated to 1.4?

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.

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.
