PKGBUILD improvements could be made by warning a user if "git" user exists (from other setup). This could be further checked if /srv/gitosis directory exists

There are more issues: 1) There's no /usr/share/doc/gitosis, so it should be either added or *not* promised in the output. 2) Something related to /srv/gitosis fails (no such file or directory).

Please update you PKGBUILD for new pacman/makepkg:

Or maybe create the user and group 'gitosis' as debian does. Then both, the 'git' and 'gitosis' users, can have their own home directory.

Your PKGBUILD shouldn't try to create the 'git' user because the git package (dependency) already creates it. Your post_install() fails when trying to create an already existing user. Instead create the gitosis directory and change gitosis' home: In your PKGBUILD: mkdir -p "$pkgdir"/srv/gitosis In your install script: usermod -d /srv/gitosis git

@alperkanat: I don't have objections to using the git user but I really don't want my repositories to be deleted if I uninstall this package. Why not just delete the user but keep the files?

@Polizei: any suggestions? The only way I can think of is to create a user & group with a unique name which is unlikely to collide with user created ones. However, git user and group are supposed to be system objects (which are smallar than minimum uid & gid) and users are supposed to take care of the naming.

Yeah, nice. Seems that you've updated the package removal hooks and now it's probably even more shit than before -- pkg_remove() destroys the `git' user.
