@xeruf The llvm/clang packages in official Arch Linux repositories were recently updated to version 16, so you don't have to compile it yourself. Of course, if you use a different distribution, you need to ask elsewhere.

This package, supposedly installed for compilation of some other package to make it smaller, was giving me headaches due to its clang and llvm >= 16 dependency which resulted in hours of compilation of llvm-git which never finished. Removed it for now.

Is there no way to make these requirements less strict?

Update to 0.20 with clang v16:

Arch has updated to clang 15 now

@jetm might I suggest reinstating the pinned and top message?

IMHO it still makes sense to set the out of date flag even if the clang dependency is not yet up to date.

There is no pinned message and has not been such at least since I first saw this package a few months ago.

@pattop v18 depends on clang v14, and Arch Linux recently upgraded it. The out-of-date flag was wrong because the submitter didn't know about that requirement. In this package, the out-of-date flag is constantly submitted because the submitters don't know the iwyu versions have a solid dependency on specific clang versions. The latter takes time to update in Arch Linux. I stopped removing the out-of-date flag because they continue doing it, even with a pinned and top message.

@jetm it was flagged out of date almost 3 months ago by @MarsSeed as v0.18 was released. That's why I submitted an orphan request.

@pattop clang was updated very recently to v14 in Arch Linux. This package is not an orphan. I will update it this week.
