@mbloms Yeah that's more reasonable ^^

Otherwise you'd get a package with the same pkgver for several commits. As for an "alternative" solution, if worst came to worst you could always just go with revision and commit, as upstream doesnt tag their stuff lol.

@katt did you actually read the page you linked before posting it?

If there are public releases but repo has no tags then the developer should get the release version somehow e.g. by parsing the project files.

Upstream has an extremely nonstandard way of tagging versions. The normal way which I make use of in all my other -git packages does not apply to this package.

You are welcome to suggest a better way to parse versions, or convince upstream to start properly tagging releases if you want to.

EDIT: I changed it so that the number of commits and commit hash is included. I hope you agree that's better. I'm not really happy with the weird version repo solution, but I can't call it 7.5.1.r... that's the version from two years ago!

Since this is a -git package, please follow the guidelines for such.
