The current jed-snapshot.install removes *.slc and *.dfa upon removal. However, this may remove other such files that other packages (notably jedstate-git) may have installed. jed-snapshot should only remove its own files. This can be done by including them in the package itself and let pacman handle it.

See the PKGBUILD of e.g. jed-git in case of doubt.

If you want a git package, create one. No need to merge anything.

@zhenya1007, before I started using this package I manualy downloaded and compiled the editor myself from the snapshots (I'm a jed user since 1994 or 1995). You can log all you want, I still prefer the snapshot. If jed-git was the only jed package available around here, I would probably accept that, but I still prefer the snapshot.

@kseistrup In the abstract, your comment might have merit. However, in the case of JED git repository, it is just silly. Why? Do a git log --oneline -10 on the repository. I am reproducing the output below:

$ git log --oneline -10

Notice a pattern?! Yeah...

I, for one, would prefer to have a jed-snapshot package that is built from the official snapshots. I'm not interested in a traditional jed-git package.

Would you consider modifying this PKGBUILD to pull straight from the upstream git repo?

I have done a "quick and dirty" version locally. If there is interest, maybe we can cooperate on morphing this into a jed-git PKBUILD?

@prk21: fixed @csts: no, this is quite normal for a split package.
