Starting with 2021-04-28 (ca0deba) geary-git uses the build-profile "release" instead of "development". This causes a change in the names of the cache-, config- and databae-directories.

Rename the following directories, if you want to keep your old setup:

  • ~/.cache/geary-development -> ~/.cache/geary
  • ~/.config/geary-development -> ~/.config/geary
  • ~/.local/share/geary-development -> ~/.local/share/geary

@jonian I've researched a bit and it seems to make sense to use the release profile to prevent that people loose they config and mail database when switching from geary to geary-git.

Apart from that I've also updated the version scheme to match it with the recommendations for VCS packages in the official wiki.

@jonian I thought about switching to the release-profile a few times already, but I'm still undecided. On the one hand it seems to make sense, because geary-git is obviously a package, but on the other hand it is also a -git package, which represents an unstable development state.

Are there any specific things that break without using the release profile? Or is it just about the user interface background and the icon? I am willing to change the build profile, if there are any problems.

Otherwise I'd like to follow the common behaviour of other -git packages. Do you know, if other -git packages are using release of develop profiles? Or is there something in the AUR guilelines?

Please update build file to use the "release" profile. more info at https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/geary/-/blob/gnome-40.0/BUILDING.md#build-profiles

@ilstam Oh sorry, you're right - I mixed up the dependency-chain. The PKGBUILD has been updated.

@letorbi gnome-control-center is not a dependency of gnome-online-accounts. I have the latter installed on my system without having the former.

letorbi commented on 2020-06-09 23:12

@ilstam gsound is already an implicit dependency (gnome-online-accounts > gnome-control-center > gsound)

ilstam commented on 2020-05-18 15:21

I think gsound needs to be added as a dependency

@letorbi Thanks working well.
