Known issues with 1.5.3:

Both issues are solved in aurutils-git.

I've enabled GPG signing for this package. If you get an "unknown key" error, import the key:

gpg --recv-keys DBE7D3DD8C81D58D0A13D0E76BC26A17B9B7018A

and run makepkg again. See the wiki for more information:

Support for repose is removed in master. To migrate before the 2.0 release, see:

I'll probably have some time tomorrow evening. If that isn't a problem, I'll be happy to apply the patches.

E: Currently updating and testing

And another series which includes a fix for the split package issue:

edit: I've pushed a new 1.5 branch, so if the above is in working order I can tag a new release from there.

@runical if you have some time could you apply and test this new series of patches: (in particular 0005-specify-absolute-paths-for-GIT_DIR-GIT_WORK_TREE.patch)

There is a first stage where makepkg tells me I'm missing dependencies. Then I install them, then running makepkg fails because it cannot find "patch", and then once more with "fakeroot".

Maybe add those to the dependency check at first?

With -6, makepkg -L is now optional.
