Yep. The package was updated yesterday to remove it. (I have a notifier on new tags for bcache-tools upstream ;))

Issue 12 stuff has been finally upstreamed.

Thanks for that. I've included it in the pkgbuild here and in the non-git version. I haven't done extensive testing, so if anyone has problems with it, let me (and vodik) know and I'll revert it.

If anyone is trying to use bcache with systemd based initcpio image, see this patch:

https://github.com/g2p/bcache-tools/pull/12

Problem is that a pure systemd initcpio image provides no shell interpreter for bcache-register.

Updated to follow VCS PKGBUILD guidelines as there are unannotated tags on the git repo now. Shouldn't require any manual intervention since 1 > 0.

There is now a stable bcache-tools package! https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/bcache-tools/

The git version has changed from tracking evilpiepirate upstream to g2p as his includes tagged versions and fixes from debian/fedora packagers.

Minor patch as it seems to have broken building in chroots using makechrootpkg from dev-tools.

Cheers! New version is updated. Most users will need to force the upgrade due to the change in versioning. Please also update to use the bcache_udev rule as the original bcache rule is no longer included in the package due to it not always applying in the correct order.

Let me know if there are any issues!

I've disowned the package so justin can take it over. Sorry for being absent.

heh, I see you noticed I updated the package. That -8 release uses a udev hook instead of the standard one. From my tests it has been much more reliable. Even if you put the regular hook inbetween block and filesystem, it would try to run the script before all block devices had activated. The udev way appears to work much better. If bobpaul doesn't respond in time I'll take over this package and update the archwiki with the udev stuff.
