Please change the 'provides=' line to 'provides=("${pkgname%-git}=$pkgver")' so that packages that rely on a specific kdecoration version can use kdecoration-git interchangeably. Thanks to @IncredibleLaser for the idea.

Thanks for your patch, @unusual_thoughts!

Regarding the source change: I've actually considered it before, along with another AUR user, when we had to move away from anongit. Initially, we were considering switching to, but we opted for github instead, for two reasons:

  1. The github urls are constant and deterministic. It's always git+$pkgname.git (with very few exceptions, where the arch pkgname is different). This great, because it allows for easy automation using scripts.
  2. This way, we ease the load on KDE's servers.

Additionally, both sources are up-to-date, so it makes no difference in that regard. However, if you still think we ought to change it, please feel free to reach out :)

I agree it would be nice to have more consistency here, but I don't think we should switch pkgbuilds using the new style back to the old one.

AlD commented on 2020-06-03 15:00 (UTC)

Not sure why you switched it back to SVN style versions, but it breaks the versioning. I changed it to the recommended git style pkgver() again.
