Please add git to the makedepends, otherwise installation fails in chroot with: ==> ERROR: Cannot find the git package needed to handle git sources.

Hey @smls,

Could you please also pre-compute the LS_COLORS in the PKGBUILD? There is no need for users to re-evaluate dircolors over and over again, it just slows down the terminal startup time. It really makes sense to evaluate dircolors during installation and upgrades.

I imagine you could add something like this to the build() function:

dircolors -b /usr/share/LS_COLORS > /usr/share/LS_COLORS.dircolors

And add this to the package() function:

install -D LS_COLORS.dircolors       "$pkgdir"/usr/share/LS_COLORS.dircolors

In this case, users can simply do source /usr/share/LS_COLORS.dircolors instead of doing the eval ... in their .bashrc/.zshrc

Fix now. Thanks for pointing this out.

pkgver() needs to switch to the directory before running the command. like so,

cd $_repo
printf "r%s.%s" "$(git rev-list --count HEAD)" "$(git rev-parse --short HEAD)
