Hi; most -git packages build the latest version at the time the package is built and set the version using the pkgver function to something based on the latest tag, number of commits since the tag, and current hash.

Is there a reason this package does not do that and is pinned to a specific version (which will generally be out of date for a -git package)?

Thanks @orax for the out-of-date flag, I'm updating it right now. New version is comming soon.

@obedmr thanks for the explanation. I guess I should switch to go-git. The official one's maintainers seem to show no interest in catching up with the latest release. Packages being up to date is the main reason I love Arch.

@elgs that's a good question. This is AUR which stands for Archlinux User Repository, all packages here are just not official, the ones at archlinux.org are the one that are hosted in the official Archlinux repos.

This particular case of go-git exists for those who want the latest of latest in golang and not necesary the most stable. It's build from the source code on latest commit and not necesary an offcial release of go.

For stable releases, official Archlinux-provided packages are the right choice instead of AUR ones.

I suddenly realized go and go-git are two different packages. I used to install go with sudo pacman -S go, and it seems the go package is outdated. I'm wondering whether I should completely uninstall the go package and switch to go-git?

Thanks @abonafide for your contribution, I just updated it.

Can this be updated to use the latest version of GO, which is version 1.11 at the moment?

Thanks @raetiacorvus, I just updated the PKGBUILD.

raetiacorvus commented on 2018-02-08 11:48

Hi could you add

provides=(go)
conflicts=(go)

to the PKGBUILD?

I'm trying to adopt this project. Thanks fzerorubigd, Is there something extra I should do, apart of clicking "Adopt" project?
