Ahoj, thanks for the package.

There are some issues with your package:

  • git needs to be in makedepends.
  • You use a git commit hash as the main $pkgver. However, $pkgver needs to be strongly monotoneously increasing with each upstream commit. Please change pkgver() accordingly. (Preferably, get official release version first, then you can follow .r<commit count> and then optionally hash. I also use last commit date for informational purpuses. If you cannot determine any official version number, just use r<commit count> as the first part of the $pkgver.)
  • Since that changes the versioning scheme drastically, you need to increment $epoch, too.
  • Source cannot be downloaded:
-> Cloning eeshow git repo...
Cloning into bare repository '/home/felics/.cache/yay/eeshow-git/eeshow'...
fatal: unable to update url base from redirection:
  asked for:
==> ERROR: Failure while downloading eeshow git repo

Looks like you need to use git+

Thanks for maintaining!
