Thanks @smilerish for investigating this and suggesting the change to beets-git! In fact, I had encountered this problem myself some time ago, but only resorted to installing beets-alternatives-git again, which lacks the ">=1.4.7" requirement (I should probably add that now)

Struggling to get this installed with beets-git from AUR.

Verifying that beets is installed and version>=1.4.7:

$ pacman -Qi beets
Name            : beets-git
Version         : 1.4.9.r869.g52ca0cbf-1
Provides        : beets
Conflicts With  : beets

I thought that because beets-git 'provides' beets, it should satisfy the dependency of this PKGBUILD. Does that not apply when specifying a package version? If that's true, then how can this dependency/conflict be resolved?
