I've updated it to 8 for this repo (it seems to be git's default choice for the Doxygen repo, at least on my system with core.abbrev not set in git's config).

The VCS package guidelines page on the wiki shows examples with the length set explicitly to keep the output deterministic (see this discussion).

Thank you. Please kindly remove --abbrev=7 from the git describe command. There is a good reason when git chooses a longer shorthash: it will choose the shortest hash, minimum length 7, that uniquely identifies the commit object being described.

In repos with very large number of commits, there is a need for a bit longer shorthash.

If the hash needs to be 8 characters long but someone uses a shorter one, git is unable to find the exact commit (when one looks it up with 7 characters).

Please kindly enhance the pkgver() as per VCS package guidelines to generate a pkgver pattern conforming to the RELEASE.rREVISION scheme:

It is recommended to have following version format: RELEASE.rREVISION where REVISION is a monotonically increasing number that uniquely identifies the source tree (VCS revisions do this).

The revision number delimiter ("r" right before REVISION) is important. This delimiter allows to avoid problems in case if upstream […] uses versions with different number of components. E.g. if at revision "455" upstream decides to release version 0.1 then the revision delimiter preserves version monotonicity - 0.1.r456 > r454. Without the delimiter monotonicity fails - 0.1.456 < 454.

@cdkitching Sorry for the delay, but it's fixed now.

Missing dependency: xapian-core. Please add to the PKGBUILD.

Thanks hl037; I've updated the PKGBUILD accordingly

./configure fails, replace ./configure --prefix /usr --with-doxywizard # Use python2 where necessary for doxywizard, instead of python (which is python3) sed -i 's/^\(.*\)\.commands = python /\1.commands = python2 /' addon/doxywizard/ by ./configure --prefix /usr --with-doxywizard --python python2 in PKGBUILD to make it works more properly.
