Thanks for the kind words @vorbote , I'm aware of how WIP open source software development works.

I've posted this info in here : - to give you some heads up in case you're planning updating the AUR src code - in case you are part of the upstream emacs devel team or have links to the upstream emacs devel team

I"ll have a look at how to file a bug with the upstream emacs devel team.

@stefann_inc Upstream bugs are reported upstream. Besides, when you use WIP software, if it breaks you get to keep the pieces.

FYI: Latest emacs-git from HEAD f2d22273599f96a731e23b2f6d7571af8bb7bb3f fails to build inside an nspawn clean and updated arch chroot, with this missing libgnu.a error:

  GEN      time.h
  GEN      unistd.h
  AR       libgnu.a
ar: fcntl.o: No such file or directory
make[1]: *** [Makefile:103: libgnu.a] Error 1
make: *** [Makefile:410: lib] Error 2
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in build().

Full build log can be found here: - -

As far as pkgfile is able to find only extra/clisp contains this libgnu.a file but even when adding clisp to the depends list emacs-git fails to build.

Haven't been

Can you please add emacs-seq package to provides array? emacs-seq functionality is bundled inside the new 27th version, so it is not needed anymore.

According to wiki, replaces is used to replace any obsolete packages. AUR packages should use conflicts and provides.

Please add

I don't support AUR helpers for this package in particular.

zhou13 commented on 2018-07-26 22:16

This packages fools some aur helpers such as yay when we change branch to emacs-26:

albert748 commented on 2018-06-23 02:13

please change the line: if [[ BRANCH = "emacs-26" ]]; then

to: if [[ $BRANCH = "emacs-26" ]]; then

In _conf+=( '--with-x-toolkit=no' 'without-toolkit-scrollbars' '--with-xft' '--without-xaw3d' );, without-toolkit-scrollbars should be changed to --without-toolkit-scroll-bars. It can also be removed altogether, as it should have no effect (as there is no toolkit in the first place).

Also, [[ $LTO = "yes" ]] should be changed to [[ $LTO = "YES" ]] in

if [[ $LTO = "yes" ]]; then
  export CFLAGS+=" -flto"
  export tXXFLAGS+=" -flto"
