Not to mention that zopieux's change is already in a PR against upstream.

I don't think it's wise to change upstream repos that easily.
What if another fork comes up with one extra change from Zopieux's? :)

I would suggest using Zopieux's fork for the time being, as he's got a few useful commits in there. Having GenericName search is quite nice.

It doesn't have to show up as an update in this case, because the PKGBUILD hasn't really changed and it's a '-git' package (meaning it's up to the user to decide when to upgrade).

I changed the version since people asked for it, but now it won't show as an update in your AUR helper.
I could fix it with an epoch=1 but i don't want to complicate it even more.

Only a suggestion:
I think there is nothing wrong with adding the upstream version number. It is acutally preferred and can be helpful: "git describe --long | sed -r 's/^r//;s/([^-]*-g)/r\1/;s/-/./g'"

Thanks, added quotes but i think i'll stick with this pkgver since i had it for so long and to avoid confusion with the non -git package.

The pkgdir variable should be quoted since it may contain a space, and you should change the pkgver function to use the upstream tags.

Wow, that was incredibly fast. Thanks for that! It compiles without issues again.

Your build failed before reaching the test part.
I talked with the author and he just added a command to avoid downlading extra frameworks needed for testing.
I updated the package to reflect the changes.
