Thx, I merged the packages. Going to sleep too :)

Thanks for your review, I have uploaded a new package at, resetting pkgrel and correcting the replaces line. I have tested it and pacman handles it correctly. Need sleep too, good night.

Youpi: You're right, I missed that one, should probably go to bed ;) (be careful, it's replaces, not replace)

Lekensteyn: You don't need to bump the pkgrel, other than that it's fine. You can drop the replaces line when you feel everybody has switched to your new package. A provides line would be useful only if a package depended on this one, and could be dropped as soon as said package would have updated its deps.

are you sure line 14: +replaces=('bbswitch-dkms')

is not : +replace=('dkms-bbswitch') instead ?
