The same thing could have been done (eg: append `|| true'). I've now fixed this the proper way though, and the manual is generated using the in-tree khal module (which is what we want anyway).

pkgver can simply run:

python --version

which uses whatever is using transparently. It's a bit clearer, and means you won't have to update the PKGBUILD if anything changes upstream in version-generation.

@hobarrera: By "it" I mean the PKGBUILD as whole, not make man || true. Please read my comment.
It will still fail, because the man page was never made, due to line 57, doing: install -D -m644 doc/build/man/khal.1 "${pkgdir}/usr/share/man/man1/khal.1"

Why does "make man || true" fail if khal is not installed? It should never fail, under absolutely any condition.

dvzrv commented on 2015-08-30 11:27

@hobarrera: Na, it fails, if khal is not installed yet.
When not making the man page, install of the man file would of course have to be circumvented, too.

Maybe use `mane man || true`, so that it builds in scenarios where possible, but PKGBUILD does not fail if building the doc fails?

Sort of a "best effort" thing.

@milouse: Seems for now you should drop the man page generation:

Also: you can drop all unneeded comments in the PKGBUILD file.

dvzrv commented on 2015-08-29 20:14

hmm, this doesn't build for me, because the make man fails.
It will only work, if khal is already installed.
Otherwise the "import khal" in doc/ will make it fail.

Maybe there's a way to exclude the man page generation or to fix it upstream?

python-pkginfo is a runtime dependency as well.
