I took it upon myself to create a dfhack-bin AUR package:

I also already started on creating a true source code based, compiled dfhack package. If you would orphan this package, I gladly would take over.

Actually, that becomes an interesting question. Is there a valid purpose to having a package based on the source tarball, separate from a git package? If so, that would likely be the straight-up `dfhack`, while this would be `dfhack-bin` and the rolling git package would be `dfhack-git`. That tarball package is what I was referring to when I mentioned creating a `dfhack` source package.

Actually, the source package should be dfhack-git, as per AUR naming conventions. If you're going to migrate to -bin, just delete this package. Poke me when you want to take over, Sey!

Okay, finally got the laptop mostly straight. I think I'll be ready to take back over starting next weekend. You've been a serious help, mkaito.

I agree with wookietreiber regarding renaming it dfhack-bin. Towards that end, I'll upload a new dfhack-bin AUR package that provides and conflicts dfhack. This should perhaps be reuploaded as a source package sometime shortly after.

What do y'all think about using dependencies to migrate everyone over to dfhack-bin, then turning this into a source package in a month or so?

wookietreiber commented on 2016-04-25 10:23

this package should be named dfhack-bin

Thanks, mkaito. I'm just getting my laptop straightened out, so it'll be a little bit longer before I'm on top of things again. I appreciate the help.

0.42.06-alpha2 is a pre-release. I'll continue tracking stable releases with this package. I haven't gotten around to looking into resurrecting dfhack-git yet.

Hey, I've picked up the package for the time being. If seylerius wants it back, I'll disown it ASAP.

In the meantime, I'll update the package to 40.24_r5 until the newer versions get out of alpha.

Two updates, folks:

1. DFHack is still on an alpha release at the moment. If y'all want me packaging alpha versions, speak up, but I'm of a beta-or-better mindset for this. DFHack-git follows their development faster.

2. My laptop (where I do development and packaging) is out of commission until after Friday, because I need to get paid (on Friday) and order a part. Nothing is happening until that's fixed. I'll be happy to package an alpha version if y'all want one at that point.

Nope. The DFHack team is working to update the mapping of DF's memory structures to the new version, and I'll update our distribution of DFHack as soon as they release a compatible version.
