Indeed, I misunderstood the git tag usage. The taglib-extras has been fixed in the meantime too.

This PKGBUILD targets a specific git commit

It doesn't, it creates a git tag that is missing but is still building the latest commit

This commit - Update for taglib 2.0 compatibility was made by fenuks yesterday.

I guess the PKGBUILD should be updated to require taglib instead of taglib-extras(AUR)?

In current state, the package fails to compile, see details here.

The pkgbuild works fine without taglib-extras (taglib-extras fails to build against taglib 2.x AFAIK) aside from that build fine

For the details of failing build you mentioned this which was already fixed upstream as reported in the first line of your post

This PKGBUILD targets a specific git commit. Is this the right approach?

It prevents updates without modifying PKGBUILD, which is not common with -git packages.

I mean, it's OK but then the package should be tagged as out of date for every update...

@oswald_c, thanks for the suggestion. Have update the PKGBUILD to use fenuks' fork.

oswald_c commented on 2023-05-20 17:14 (UTC)

Regarding forks, this one https://github.com/fenuks/cantata is active, and fenuks made a number of contributions to cantata when it was maintained by its original developer.

That's too bad. This package should probably be discontinued, since it's going to match the release version going forward.

FYI, upstream repository has been archived. Hope some forks or good alternative emerges.

@goetzc works perfectly, thanks for the quick fix!
