Ahhh.... NO! Python is needed *only* if you are using Jam to build freetype or compiling the python extensions, which FYI are a different package. I am definitely not using Jam to compile freetype.

IT is incredibly rude to post a comment and then file an out-of-date notification at the same time. Do you want to maintain this package? You are welcome to it, just ask nicely and you can have it.

There is a missing build dependency: python2

I see no advantage using makepkg to download either

Which makes no sense whatsoever in an AUR PKGBUILD.

To test different branches.

Scimmia commented on 2013-04-23 21:01

And why, exactly, would you ever do that in a PKGBUILD?

yuyichao commented on 2013-04-23 11:53

No. Switching branches is (relatively) simple although your way will not work both because it has to be run before pkgver() (in order to get the right pkgver) and because a simple `git checkout` is not enough when you have patches.

Yes by switch URL what I really need is switching to a branch that only exists on another URL, and neither `git checkout`, nor anything without switching remote URL, can do that.

Scimmia commented on 2013-04-23 10:56

You're making such a big deal about changing the URL, what are you talking about? Just changing where HEAD is (branch or ref)? Simple, do a "git checkout" in the prepare function. Doing it this was is a bit ridiculous, and pkgver won't even be run.

yuyichao commented on 2013-04-12 22:21

I can fix other things. But still, the main problem is makepkg cannot change the url to fetch sources from without deleting original copy (So I will not use the git url in source array unless this is fixed).

Earnest commented on 2013-04-12 22:14

It sounds like you're trying to apply patches and edit the source which makepkg has downloaded instead of in a local git directory.

At any rate here's my final (personal) PKGBUILD: http://ix.io/59W/sh

PS: Please don't use pkgbase [1] "fontconfig" (this is not a split package, nor would you use this for split packages on the AUR) and please update the maintainer field.
