@andykluger Sorry about that. I seemingly stilled relied an old version of the repository. This should be fixed now.

@edh well now my local version is 1:continuous.master.r5.gf236f33-1 while the AUR version is 1:r834.38c20d3-1, which looks "newer" as well.

@andykluger Thanks for the comment! Unfortunately, upstream pruned all tags from the repository and completely got rid of any fixed version counter. I increased the epoch accordingly.

Currently pkgver produces results like continuous.master.r3.g38c20d3, which is sorted as "older" than the AUR version, so that the package always looks out of date on a user's system.

The correct link seems to be (s/NitruxSA/Nitrux/)

Thanks for letting me know. I updated the package accordingly.

repo structure has been changed; dark theme seems to be removed, root directory has been renamed to "Luv"

@rushaur Introducing a $_pkgname is not required. The build should work fine either way. You problem is most likely unrelated. Try removing /tmp/makepkg and build from a fresh copy.
By the way you can stick as many forward-slashes in there and it would not change a thing. The filesystem is capable of ignoring them. Just try it yourself.

With the 'original' PKGBUILD I get this error:
==> ERROR: /tmp/makepkg//luv-icon-theme-git is not a clone of (Notice the two slashes).

Here is the PKGBUILD that worked for me with few tweaks (german locale installed,didn't test without):

Unfortunately upstream chose to include special characters everywhere in the project. Since makepkg is still able to create a proper package, I chose to stick as close to the source as possible without changing naming schemas.
