Thanks guotsuan, I don't get these errors anymore.

Or just update to newer version of package. I updated the codes to cope with the problem

I think the error caused by the variable, beautiful.fg_normal is not set.

First, could you check if you have awesome lua package 'beautiful' by run command 'locate beautiful/init.lua'. I guess you should have this package.
Also check if you include it in your rc.lua such like

local beautiful = require("beautiful")

Then, you can check if you include a theme in your rc.lua by
Usually you will included one, but it is not necessary.
But after you include a theme for your awesome. beautiful.fg_normal should
be taken care by the theme.

If you do not want to include a theme.
you can also add a line before revelation.init() to specify the color used
by beautiful.fg_normal, for example:

local beautiful = require('beautiful')

beautiful.fg_normal = #DCDCCC

I get these errors at startup (Awesome v3.5.6):

/usr/share/awesome/lib/revelation/init.lua:350: attempt to concatenate a nil value (field 'fg')

error while running the function
stack traceback:
/usr/share/awesome/lib/revelation/init.lua:350: in function 'revelation.init'
/home/XXX/.config/awesome/rc.lua:44: in main chunk
error: /usr/share/awesome/lib/revelation/init.lua:350: attempt to concatenate a nil value (field 'fg')

[line 44 in rc.lua contains "revelation.init()"]

Thanks @xduugu for the reminding. The PKGBUILD has been updated.

Also it says that it was merged with awesome-revelation, it still depends only on awesome-git.

My mistake. I forgot the "revelation.init()"
