I have been gradually working on a new backend for a while. It is available for testing here[1]. It is not entirely backwards-compatible so please give it a try now and get ready to migrate your configuration files and scripts. Extension developers are most welcome :D.

Please keep related discussion in the forum thread.

@print
You need to build the package with makepkg. Please read the makepkg and PKGBUILD pages on the wiki.

NOTE TO ALL AUR USERS
Please follow the forum thread for discussions about issues, updates, etc. In particular, the last release includes a patched version of makepkg that restores the deprecated --pkg option for selective installation of split packages along with some other changes that will require an update to the configuration file if it has been modified.

@Imat
The wiki page is from the previous version a few years ago. Other people wrote it and then it was removed when the previous version was deprecated. I may fill in the page myself but someone else will do it eventually if I don't. Until then, check the project page for usage examples. Post any questions that you have here or on the forum (preferably the forum for development question, here for packaging issues).

The error indicates that you do not have the latest version of powerpill and probably some other dependencies. These packages are developed in parallel and need to be kept in sync. I suppose that it will be easier once bauerbill is installed ;) Until then, you can use my repo[1] to synchronize my packages if you don't want to do it manually.

Maybe I'm running it incorrectly?

The wikipedia page is incorrect? https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Bauerbill

@Kaeltis
I prefer to use long explicit options for non-pacman arguments to avoid potential name collisions in the future.

That said, I plan to refactor the bauerbill/powerpill/pm2ml argument parsing which has become a mess and I have an idea to make arguments configurable.

Could you add a yaourt-like syntax "bauerbill -Syua" instead of "bauerbill -Syu --aur"?
