Great ! Ty for the quick fix.

Oops. That's what happens when I base the VCS package on the standard package rather than the other way round... :/

Fixed now.

Thx @jonathon, great package.

Sadly, the current PKGBUILD just labels each version "latest". So, despite of this being a VCS-package, the pkgver won't be changed after an upstream commit and a rebuild, thus makepkg/pacman won't recognize that the package has actually changed.

Would u mind adding a pkgver() function to the PKGBUILD, e.g. something like :

diff --git i/PKGBUILD w/PKGBUILD
index cecb4cd..b50f9cf 100644

That would increase the version number with every commit, and append the hash ID of that commit.
