This scripts allows for changing version field of package in pacman db, for purpose of automatically adding git/vcs packages to update queue during system updates using AUR helpers ( eg. yaourt -Syua ). Example invocation:
• Just downgrade to a-0 to force update (default):
changeling firefox-nightly
• For specific version:
changeling firefox-nightly 666-666

A simple symlink can be used instead to update eg. mpv-git weekly:
ln -sr /usr/bin/changeling /etc/cron.weekly/mpv-git
