Please add a patch for debhelper to install the man pages:

And then add "install-man" to the "make install" in the PKGBUILD. Thanks :)

It doesn't install the localized man pages but imo english is enough.

@benallard I recall that being an issue but just spun up a new arch machine and didn't see it can you provide me your solution to add to the package?

Can we hard-code the path to pod2man in the buildscript please ? It systematically fails unless one alter the PATH for that one build.

debhelper package(s) failed to install. Check .SRCINFO for mismatching data with PKGBUILD

To correctly install, needed to change package version to po-debconf-1.0.20_all.deb and SHA256 checksum, since po-debconf-1.0.19_all.deb is no longer available. Please, update and keep the good job. ;-)

Misses git makedepend.

Currently doesn't build without manually adding /usr/bin/vendor_perl/ to $PATH; it fails with a 'po4a: command not found'.

Any chance the dh_bash-completion stuff could be pulled in from Debian's bash-completion package?

fyi, to you patch makers, it has (finally!) been fixed in upstream:;a=commit;h=42db16e0390b4eb86669db622ef951fa46956b78
