Could you mark /etc/ly/ and /etc/ly/ as backup files in the PKGBUILD? They provide an easy point of modification for the environment and currently contained changes are removed on every update of this package.

@Sapiens Right... Should be fine now...

Sapiens commented on 2021-10-07 14:30

@nullgemm it seems you need to also modify the PKGBUILD, it does not build yet

@Sapiens @jojoto147 I just pushed a few emergency commits to fix this. Sorry for the inconvenience, I forgot Ly relied on this piece of shit.

I am getting asked for github credentials for the ctypes repository.

It should conflict with python-ly (which is a completely unrelated package from the community repository):

error: failed to commit transaction (conflicting files)
python-ly: /usr/bin/ly exists in filesystem (owned by ly)
Errors occurred, no packages were upgraded.

Please add a corresponding conflicts=-statement.

Thanks for maintaining!

Would it be reasonable to add "/etc/pam.d/ly" as a backup file?

I make changes to "/etc/pam.d/ly" in order to incorporate pam_ssh configurations. These changes are blown away on package updates, which I believe is because the file isn't marked as backup.

I realize this use case is pretty specific and I do not know AUR pkgbuild best practices.

/usr/bin/ly conflicts with python-ly that's in the Community repo. Is there anything that can be done about that?
