@jeromeg Well this version worked! It'll be the next one that has the nice diff, but this time I do see pkgver in the source URL, so I expect it will be great. Thanks for working with me on this.

@samhclark thanks for the PR and the fix! Looks like we released since then, did it work? :)

@jeromegn: Thanks for linking those files, that's exactly right. I think only the pkgver= line needs to be changed in the PKGBUILD, so the pkgver variable in the workflow needs to be renamed. Naming things is hard, but if you like the idea of calling the first thing "tag" and the second thing "version" then I have a PR for you

Hope that helps make things easier for you, and forgive me if that repo doesn't like outside contributions, or if there is something more I need to do to test a change like that.

@samhclark: Ah, this is all because we use envsubst and that variable is exported so it's being replaced in the source property.

The "template" for our PKGBUILD is here:

and the variable is exported here:

It sounds like we need to rename the pkgver variable in the workflow and then match that in the template where pkgver=... so we only change that one?

Hey, this is a silly thing, but could you change the PKGBUILD so that the version is a parameter in the source? Right now, it's the slightest of inconvenience to review each diff, because I have to look at the whole URL and make sure that the version is really all that changed. See below:

diff --git a/PKGBUILD b/PKGBUILD
index 2561980..bcc34c5 100644
@@ -1,7 +1,7 @@
 # Maintainer: Jerome Gravel-Niquet <>

 pkgdesc="Command line tools for services"
@@ -10,8 +10,8 @@ license=("Apache")

 package() {
     mkdir -p "$pkgdir/usr/bin"

To be clear, I'm asking to change the source line in PKGBUILD like this:


Then when it's just a pkgver change and a hash change it's painless to review.

With that change, mkpkg still works and makepkg --printsrcinfo > .SRCINFO doesn't change .SRCINFO at all so I think it means it's a safe change.

I would send this in the form of a PR/MR/patch but I don't really know how to do that with AUR things...

@qqwy: Good point. I just pushed a change in our repo to add a symlink. Hopefully it works on the next release!

The installation works great.

However, it seems that Fly nowadays both exposes the executable as flyctl and as fly. A lot of the documentation pages have been modified to use fly as name for the executable.

Should this package maybe be updated to add a fly alias as well?

jeromegn commented on 2021-02-04 15:11 (UTC)

@unixfox: this should be fixed now. Our envsubst call was replacing too many variables that looked like env vars

For some unknown reason it doesn't want to build anymore:

EDIT: I found the issue you need to add $pkgdir before /usr/bin. You removed it in commit 87d6a7c036e1

I've made this a part of our release workflow. It shouldn't get outdated as often anymore.
