the package version does not meet standard, my bad. it should has no v in version number

  • fix method 1: if you want to version your changes like v4.0.6 and keep aur versioning like 4.0.6.r3.gac5022f you need to change pkgver() to somthing like:
git describe --long --tags --abbrev=7 | sed 's/^v//;s/\([^-]*-g\)/r\1/;s/-/./g'

this removes the v at the beginning of version number. (this expression is compatible with fix method 2)

  • fix method 2: if you do not want to change pkgver() you need to state a diffrent type of comment in you tag annotate
git tag -a "4.0.6" -m "bump version to v4.0.6"

with this you change versioning scheme. i see with commit 967831e in your github repo, you used this method of tagging ,but with 9eabf8e you moved to new tagging scheme.

do you possibly want to use git describe --tags in pkgver, so you get a more readable pkgver something like

pkgver() {
        cd "$srcdir/${pkgname%-git}"
        git describe --long --tags --abbrev=7 | sed 's/\([^-]*-g\)/r\1/;s/-/./g'

the you can easily control aur version in your dev env, like:

git tag -a "v4.0.3" -m "bump version to v4.0.3"

I am assuming you are the original dev?
