A PKGBUILD adressing the issues from here, here, here, here and here I have put for download here:

Might be for an inspiration for you to improve this package. (I won't maintain it.)

Thanks for maintaining!

What is the mercurial make dependency needed for? I think it is unneeded and can be removed.

According to the packaging guidelines, -git packages should get upstream version information as fist part of $pkgver if available.

This software has it available: git describe --tags leads to v0.2.1-71-g180467a.

So pkgver() should extract the 0.2.1-71 (and convert the - to something allowed in $pkgver, e.g. .). Then the "revision" (commit counts) can follow, then optionally latest commit date can follow, then optionally the latest git commit has can follow. A pkgver() could then look like:

pkgver () {
    cd "${srcdir}/${pkgname}"
    _ver="$(git describe  --tags | sed 's|^v||' | sed 's|-[^-]*$||' | tr '-' '.')"
    _rev="$(git rev-list --count HEAD)"
    _date="$(git log -1 --date=format:"%Y%m%d" --format="%ad")"
    _hash="$(git rev-parse --short HEAD)"

    if [ -z "${_ver}" ]; then
      error "Version could not be determined."
      return 1
      printf '%s' "${_ver}+r${_rev}.${_date}.${_hash}"

This would currently lead to the following version string: Don't forget to increment $epoch when changing versioning scheme.

When starting cournal, I get the error AttributeError: 'gi.repository.Gtk' object has no attribute 'events_pending':

I have no idea what this means or what to do about it.

The error reported on 2020-11-08 by @Tio still persists:

PKGBUILD: line 24: ./ No such file or directory

I solved it by just deleting that line (and the whole build() function, because it is no longer needed then) and adding python-twisted to the depends array.

@Maintainer: Can you please fix that?

This downloads the latest version from a git repository. So you must name your package cournal-git (i.e. with a -git suffix).

Please rename your package (= uploading new one, and submitting merge request to old one).

And don't forget to add conflicts=('cournal'), provides=("cournal=${pkgver}") to the -git-package.

Thanks for maintaining!

This package is missing the dependency "python-cairo"
