Important note: You likely want to use the official Gitea package instead.

Gitea - a fork of Gogs - has been added to the official repositories:

That means for Arch Linux the decision has been made to support Gitea rather than Gogs. Hence I suggest everyone to use Gitea instead of Gogs for new installations. I've been testing Gitea for a while myself now and it works well. So I'm also going to switch fully to Gitea myself.

Nevertheless I'll continue maintaining this package for a while now to support old installations. However, I'm not doing any fine-tuning for this package anymore.

Further notes
  • If anybody was using the Gitea package from my PKGBUILDs repository: It is easy to migrate the official Gitea package because the packages are structured more or less the same. The only significant difference between the packages is that mine was using the user gitea and the official package the user git. So that has to be changed in the config and for the ownership of /var/lib/gitea.
  • It is also possible to install this Gogs package provided here and Gitea at the same time (of course operating on different databases!). That makes it easy to try out Gitea without breaking the existing Gogs installation. Repos can be copied quite easily using my gogs2gitea script. (I'm afraid migrating isn't possible anymore without installing an old Gitea version first.)

Thanks for the update :-)

Quick question: Does this really require go-bindata-git? Can't it be built with the version in the repos?

xsmile commented on 2017-05-05 20:50

Thanks :-)

boosterdev commented on 2017-05-05 19:16

@xsmile sorry have been busy last weeks will make changes as soon as possible.
@runical bad habbit for making x86_64 packages only.

@boosterdev: As you didn't reply to my email, I ask again here.

Do you have any plans to change the package and address the issues mentioned by runical?

runical commented on 2017-04-18 12:26

@boosterdev: Seems you didn't read the comments, but welcome anyway. Cound you explain your changes to the PKGBUILD and things we need to take into account when updating?

For example, you've removed i686 and the arm architectures from the supported archs. Why did you do that? Also, you removed the epoch, meaning that the update does not register with many aur helpers ;-)

runical commented on 2017-04-13 12:16

@Martchus: Remember that you can co-maintain packages, so you can also do that.

wicast has disowned the package. I would take ownership, however only with the changes mentioned in my comment from 2017-03-19:
* binary is now under /usr/bin
* and only static files under /usr/share/gogs
* config is now under /etc/gogs instead of /srv/...
* logs are now under /var/log/gogs
* working dir and repos are now under /var/lib/gogs
* patches are formatted appropriately
* dependencies in base or base-devel are removed

So I'll wait for some feedback before taking ownership. Maybe you prefer the variant by edacval? Then he should take ownership. In any case the Wiki should be updated accordingly.

Martchus commented on 2017-04-12 11:11

Just updated my variant to 0.11.4:

I kept the patches in my version since these shouldn't be hard to maintain and I guess having the config with all the defaults is quite useful because you can see directly all available options.

sachilles commented on 2017-04-11 14:54


shall we assume that the package is orphaned? Or is there a chance to provide a current release.

I guess that edacval did a good job and the GitHub repo is it worth to be checked out. Please upgrade to the latest release.

edacval commented on 2017-03-19 20:32

And here is another version:
built without symbols and debug info
binary is now under /usr/bin
static files under /usr/share/gogs
GOGS_HOME at /srv/gogs
config in default gogs location: $GOGS_HOME/custom/conf/app.ini
working dir and repos : GOGS_HOME
No patches anymore. app.ini now contains just the overrides from default builtin values.
