FYI, git support can be put right in the PKGBUILD... very easy:

This will be very helpful once I figure out if I can use this without having to edit each pkgbuild file, because I have no idea how to do that. I voted for it as many people use it and I can definitely see it's usefulness. Thank you, brisbin33 for creating and maintaining this.

4.3.0 released with split package support

Well done juengim!

Thanks for the updated patch. It was actually still invalid as your email address was missing. I manually added it using the email from your profile here, hope that was OK.

I've got it applied in a branch, but the existing test suite is failing so there may be a bug in your implementation. I'll have to spend some time sorting that out before I can release it.

If anyone cares to try it out, it's the "slit-packages" branch on GitHub.

I never used git before. Is this what you need?

brisbin33 commented on 2014-08-16 14:19

juengim, by credit i mean attaching your email/author info for the commit. I could use `git am` to apply the patch with you as the author and myself signing it off. For that to work, your patch would've had to have author information though (and it doesn't seem to now).


Could you make a new patch by using `git format-patch`?

juengim commented on 2014-08-16 09:47

OK, thanks.

I'm not sure what you have in mind in terms of credit. Personally, I'm not interested in any credit.

Unfortunately I don't know how to do cram tests. I hope you can take care of that part.

OK, I don't have a problem accepting a raw patch if you're not on GH -- I might need some pointers on ensuring you get credit for the change though.

I think the color change is good, I'll take care of that. Also, by "test", I meant an actual cram test. If you can't figure out the way I'm doing testing though, I can probably take care of adding tests after I merge your change.

Either way, I'll be able to revisit this over the weekend hopefully.

One more thing:

I think this would be a better default value for $colorW:

This is white+bold on a black background and black+bold on a white background.

The current default is also white on a white background which isn't optimal:

brisbin33, thanks for the response.

I'm not on github though and I'm not sure if I want to open an account just for this. Any chance you'd consider the patch anyway?

I've also extended the patch a bit and added dependency handling for split packages. Here is the new version of the patch:

If aurget adds a split package as a dependency for another package, the split package is now correctly installed as dependency (--asdeps).

Here are some tests:

Simple installation of a split package:
aurget -S chromium-pepper-flash

Installation of a split package as a dependency for another package (chromium-pepper-flash is the dependency):
aurget -S freshplayerplugin --deps
