P.S. I like @xeyler's suggestions here - makes it much nicer. Planning in incorporating them here, mayber after we get #531 and #535 in?

Happy to not add .git folder - good suggestion.

For versions, the main reason was basically we haven't used/updated tags (and done releases) for a long time. Have now started that again, so potentially moving to tags based describe makes sense.

Thoughts @hikhvar?

Is there any reason to include the .git* folders/files into the package? Adding -not -path '*.git*' to the find on line 24 excludes them.

Why not version the package as recommended by Arch VCS package guidlines? See:

Thanks @hikhvar! Yes, I agree re PaperWM - I also wouldn't be without it (everything else feels unnatural now). Re the GitHub actions - that sounds awesome and definitely something to look at moving forward.

thanks for the great work on PaperWM. That is my daily driver and I think I couldn't live without it anymore. I have added you as a co-maintainer. Maybe we could setup some automatic release workflow via GitHub Actions, so none of us has to do manual work?

Hey @hikhvar, nice work! I'm the maintainer of PaperWM on github. Can I be added as a co-maintainer to this pkg? Would like to keep this AUR pkg updated (or at least do some updates so downstream users get notified when larger features/changes/updates land... e.g. Gnome 44 support and a bunch of keybind clash detection fixes I've added).
