Could you provide examples that I can test where things would go worse without those?

add exe-thubnailer and wine-installer as deps

Review now.

This will be fixed within a week.

automation scripts aside, the pkgbuild needs fixing. you can do the automation part later if you so wish...

As per the orphan request, I thought I said I will fix it.

coderobe commented on 2019-11-14 21:22

Right, so even if all your scripts work correctly, pulling the source and acquiring the pkgver are not atomically tied to each other - you may generate invalid metadata with this due to TOCTOU...

Please fix your PKGBUILDs to follow the common pkgbuild style, removing these hacks.

Ummm... now that you say it most likely yes. I will add testing that to my todo list , and report back here if I see any problem with that. Otherwise I will update all the packages accordingly.

I don't understand what the problem with using an external tool is. This external tool can use exactly the same logic to update $pkgver in the PKGBUILD and push a new PKGBUILD to the AUR.

Bottom line is:

  • These decisions are experimental and incomplete. I haven't brought a discussion about them because it's too soon for that, and the only way to figure them out is to publish them in a controlled manner.

  • A group can agree with the overall result of the work, but its implementation consist of hundreds of small details that only the implementer knows. Discussing all of those is impracticable.
