You have to keep the epoch value, and also you should never decrease it.

This is the only mechanism that the Arch packaging tools support for ensuring that the version is strictly monotonically increasing, in cases when the base pkgver gets decreased, irrespective of the reason behind it.

But you don't have to worry about it. Visually it might look strange, but this kind of version string is completely normal on Arch Linux. In fact, many repo packages have such a version.

@MarsSeed I have added the epoch. Will I be able to delete it later on though, or will it need to stay forever, since the project doesn't seem to be updating real soon?

Also, please just comment in case of that stuff. Flagging packages is exclusively for when they're behind the latest release.

@MarsSeed Sorry for not being active, I will do it today. Thank you for making an alternative package for ffmpeg-compat-59!

Please kindly switch depends from the defunct ffmpeg-compat-59 to its equivalent that works, ffmpeg5.1.

Also please declare dotnet-runtime-6.0 in depends instead of dotnet-runtime. As the application does not work with other versions.

Implementing a pkgver() function in PKGBUILD is also required by Arch VCS package guidelines.
