Problem with the actual PKGBUILD. (javafx-docs 8u74-2)
For the javafx-docs Split-Package.

==> Starting package_javafx-docs()...
install: the stat call for "LICENSE-JavaFX" is not posible: File or Directory not found.

Det: You're right, I completely missed the out-of-date flag. I've updated the package to 8.45 but I'll disown it right now. Feel free to adopt it, you'll be a better maintainer.

I've included it. It made me change paths on the filesystem a bit, so if someone has it in bookmarks as I do, they'll need to update them.

Could you also include a javafx directory:, since JavaFX has been a part of JDK since 7u6.

Thank you, updated.

Since makepkg 4.2.0, the DLAGENTS line can't have quotes around "oraclelicense=a":

DLAGENTS=('http::/usr/bin/curl -LC - -b oraclelicense=a -O')

Regarding my makepkg issue: It's only because of the development version of makepkg, and it seems that it may be in fact a bug: I thought it was an intentional change. So there's probably no reason to change it in the PKGBUILD.

As for the difference between openjdk8-doc and jdk-docs, I did a diff between the two. The diff has about 130,000 lines, but from a quick glance it seems that most of it are different timestamps or swapped lines in files.

BTW, a question for everybody else interested: there is also a package openjdk8-doc which has the advantage of being in the official repositories. Does this package (jdk-docs) contain anything that openjdk8-doc wouldn't? I know that technically one contains documentation for Oracle Java and the other contains documentation for OpenJDK but does that differ in practice?

stativ: Thanks, I obviously didn't see this one.
Under which circumstances doesn't $srcdir contain the sources? Is it only because of the development version of makepkg? Is that a bug of makepkg or is that a new behavior? It sounds weird to me that $srcdir wouldn't contain the sources. :-)

kkl2401: fair enough.

As for the missing symlink problem I'm having, you can use $SRCDEST instead of $srcdir. It's not a nice solution, but it's guaranteed to contain the downloaded sources.

Regarding the wrong ownership: there's a typo in the PKGBUILD - you are missing "g" in "$pkgdir" on the line where you call chown.
