I'm not using this any more, feel free to adopt it.

Upstream is now It might be sensible to make a split package with all the contrib utilities.

@WhyNotHugo The xdg-user-dirs dependency can now be removed (or moved to optdepends).

See (yes, I know you wrote it!)

I think this package should builddep on git, otherwise this package fails to be built in a clean chroot (e.g., with aurutils). Other -git packages list git as a dependency, for reference.

Can you update this package? yay keeps trying to parse the version string in lexicographical order, and your pkgver() function keeps returning v1.5-* which is explicitly lower priority than 1.2-*. Please either fix pkgver to strip the leading v or bump the AUR version to one with a v.

Simply adding s/^v// to your sed command will work.
