Thanks for suggestion Alad, I will add them with next update.

My laptop is unusable, updates ASAP.

Some suggestions:

- quote "$pkgdir" and "$srcdir" so the build doesn't fail in directories with spaces
- "$srcdir" in cd "$srcdir"/... is redundant, as the build starts in that directory
- consider using git and #tag=$pkgver so the build doesn't fail on upstream version bumps, as suggested/implemented in dpkg

Package updated, I found out why I wasn't detecting the error. Now everything should be fine.

@max-k / maintainer, I was wrong, yes /usr/share/bash-completion/completions/bts is provided already by bash-completion. If you do a new package revision (as I just did with my devscripts-git AUR package), the file will conflict. pacman -Rs bash-completion, will remove /usr/share/bash-completion/completions/bts, and add it back on reinstall. Installing an upgraded devscripts will cause this conflict:

error: failed to commit transaction (conflicting files)
devscripts-git: /usr/share/bash-completion/completions/bts exists in filesystem

Alternative *-git package that follows latest source tree:

@max-k I built the package and I have no conflicts with bash-completion.

The file /usr/share/bash-completion/completions/bts is already provided by extra/bash-completion package.

Please remove it from your package to avoid conflicts.

Thanks a lot.

dscverify does not find the keyrings installed by the AUR package debian-archive-keyring. What do we need to put in ~/.devscripts to have things found? Can this be passed to a configure step here to set this up ahead of time? Seems this will work:

Is it somehow actually possible to buidl deb files with this? My problem is that devscripts commans (debuild or dpkg-builpackage) always query package data base for packages, then do not find them and fail hard) Any solution to this?
