Here is a patch that adds the .so file to provides and updates the packaging to the VCS packaging guidelines like @MarsSeed suggested:

Since the package has been flagged out of date for about half a year now with no comment by the maintainers, I think that the package maintainer(s) @1ace (and potentially @emersion if they feel responsible for this package) should think about whether this deviation from the packaging guidelines is intended and/or whether they want to continue maintaining this package.

I'd happily take up maintainership or co-maintainership if you don't have time or don't want to do it any more.

Please add provides+=( as in repo package.

Also please change pkgver format to follow the {RELEASE_VERSION}.r{REVISION} scheme.

@emersion: thanks for the pointer! I've disabled the test for now (with the same comment you put on the non-git package) and made you a co-maintainer of this package so that you can fix it up without having to go through me next time ^^

Hi! gen-test-data is not a good command to run without manual checks, it'll override the expected test data, so the tests will always succeed. See also:

@italoghost: thanks for the comment! you are correct on every point, and I have applied the fix (although I localized it to check() instead so that it doesn't affect builds with tests disabled)

Would you like to be added as a co-maintainer, so that you can make any change without going through me?

Hi! The package fails to compile, giving an error on the edid decoding of a specific monitor. Reading the libdisplay-info GitLab's page, it says that to re-generate the test data, it is needed to run ninja -C build/ gen-test-data.

I overwrote the line 29 of the PKGBUILD and it worked!

Could you change from

build() {
  arch-meson libdisplay-info build
  ninja -C build


build() {
  arch-meson libdisplay-info build
  ninja -C build/ gen-test-data
