@jstoik1 Thanks for passing on the torch!

Thanks @Marcouney!

I actually don't have any active Arch installs at the moment, so I went ahead and disowned the package. If you would like to adopt it, I'm sure other users would appreciate it. :)

PKGBUILD should be sanitized: the build() function is useless, here, as we are just grabbing a file — the Perl script —; besides, the date in $pkgver should not be hardcoded but generated by a pkgver() function. I suggest the following modifications:


pkgver() {
  cd "$srcdir/$_gitname"
  git describe --long --tags | sed 's/\([^-]*-g\)/r\1/;s/-/./g'

package() {
  cd "$srcdir/$_gitname"
  mkdir -p "$pkgdir/usr/bin"
  cp $_gitname "$pkgdir/usr/bin"

If you insist that $pkgver contains the date of the last commit, put this in pkgver():

git log -1 --format=%cd.%h --date=short|tr -d -


git log -1 --format=%cd --date=short|tr -d -

Thanks for the heads up, @dark-saber. I removed that dependency entirely; I don't think it is needed for this package.

What is the "setuptools" makedep? Is it python-setuptools or python2-setuptools?
