How do you suggest completions should be installed?

I provided a patch to PKGBUILD that performs it in a standard way. Please take a look. Also there are quite a few improvements to the build process that you could take advantage of.

What's the reason for not including it?

The Arch packaging guidelines tell so:

If the license changes for whatever reason, you will have to change the license=() line anyway.

Hi @intelfx

Thanks for the feedback. I've make the top three changes you suggested.

How do you suggest completions should be installed? I personally get them from sourcing minikube completion zsh in my .zshrc but I don't want to be managing rc files from an aur package.

Regarding the license, I personally don't see the harm in including it and means that it will be properly updated if the license changes for whatever reason. What's the reason for not including it?

  • strip v from $pkgver
  • drop make from makedeps and glibc from deps (they are in base-devel and base respectively)
  • replace kubectl-bin with kubectl in optdepends
  • install completions
  • do not install a copy of the license (the Apache license is a common one)

Or, preferably, apply a patch with above-mentioned fixes and a few improvements:

Thank you for your feedback - I have made the appropriate changes.

The sources were all in the source array, however the build step requires the repository to be in a folder src/ (for GOPATH reasons), so the PKGBUILD was using git to clone from already-downloaded source into that path. I have changed it so we're using standard copies and moves to make the intent more obvious.

I have moved the build step into the build() function as you suggested.

A couple of notes:

1) You should put all sources into the sources array. Don't run git clone manually inside prepare. 2) Have a separate build() step where you run make.
