Now it should build. Let me know otherwise, thanks.

The latest update doesn't build. There is an extra $_pkgname in install path. Try this instead:

package() {
    cd "$_pkgname"
    install -dm755 "$pkgdir"/usr/share/lua/5.3/${_pkgname##*-}
    install -m644 {LICENSE,README.rst,*.lua} "$pkgdir"/usr/share/lua/5.3/${_pkgname##*-}

Edited for better fix

@MarsSeed Hi, thank you for letting me know. I'll try to conform the package to the latest guidelines ASAP. However, any help is appreciated.

Currently this is not a '-git' VCS package.

Please change it so that its source is declared as git+,

and the PKGBUILD should implement an appropriate pkgver() function.

If we have to wait (2020-07-25 to 2021-02-19) for you to run a script, you are manually updating it.

See "Suffix pkgname with -cvs, -svn, -hg, -darcs, -bzr, -git etc. unless the package fetches a specific release."

Your package fetches a specific commit. It does not always provide the latest commit. In the time between when the last commit is made and whenever you decide to run your script, this PKGBUILD fails to provide the latest commit. Which could be today, tomorrow, or six months from now.

Also see (specifically url). Your source does not include a "URL to the VCS repository". It includes a URL to an archive of a specific commit. This is not the same thing.

If you don't want to use git, this shouldn't be named so. You should not need to update a -git PKGBUILD, it's self updating ala git and pkgver(). The things you are doing in that script should be done in the PKGBUILD itself.

@suffer I am not updating manually.

The .zip fetched by the PKGBUILD is automatically built by GitHub: this allows removing git as a build dependency and saves me from having to clean up git files, as I did before (see comments below).

All I do is to run this script:

@lcpz Is there are reason to fetch the zip vs git clone? I would usually expect '-git' package to provide the latest commit, so I was a little suprised to see that you are manually updating the PKGBUILD.

@Birdink Package updated, thank you for reminding me.

The package here is a bit out of date of the repo: can it get updated to the most recent commit, pkgsha b77dee0250599b2810efadf34f612f32c7ceb556? Thanks!
