This was breaking for me, because even though master was checked out for some reason the command uses to find the current branch was still detecting makepkg and failing. I had to add git branch -d makepkg to get it to build. Here's a patch (it's one line):

Hello, could you update download to git+https?

@swdunlop Thank you for the patch, applied and tested.

Patch for build changes at -- in short, upstream moved the build script and renamed the license file.

Please don't mark a package as "out of date" just because the git server happens to be down for a few days. git:// is still the official upstream for the project. There is a mirror on Github at , please use this when the main server is down or if you experience slow download speed.

Thanks for the info. Btw, I've dropped the patch to FUEL completely, it figures out the path to Factor relative from its own directory.

@ackalker: I'm flattered actually :) And I completely agree, it makes sense not to reinvent the wheel. If you are interested, my PKGBUILD is on GitHub:

@LeonidasXIV Yes I did ;-) (sorry, forgot to mention you, changing it now!) This way, it's easier to diff the PKGBUILDS for important changes.

Resurrected factor-git: - Initial build and subsequent updates (Git pull and incremental builds) managed by build-support/ - Updates use `build-support/ quick-update`, you can change 'quick-update' to 'update' if needed. - Working with the tree and building this package from it should both be possible. - Option 'ccache' in makepkg.conf recommended, because while 'quick-update' will quickly refresh the image, it will rebuild all of the VM on every run (bug?) Any suggestions are very welcome.
