@gdiscry thanks, that first link clears it up I think :)

@lucaswerkmeister thanks.

FYI mentions "Include the appropriate VCS tool in makedepends=() (cvs, subversion, git, ...)." and it's also in the prototype PKGBUILD

As per, only the packages in base-devel and their dependencies are implicit dependencies.

I don't remember if it fails when fetching the sources or because of pkgver, but it fails with aurutils and it's mostly a wrapper around makechrootpkg.

Anyways, dependency added.

@gdiscry: hm, shouldn’t it be an implicit dependency because you need git to fetch the sources? Or is that step still done outside the chroot, but we need git for pkgver as well, and that’s the problem?

git is missing as makedepends. It's not part of base or base-devel and building the package with makechrootpkg fails without adding it.

@willemw: done, thanks! (vercmp says that 3.r.g is newer than r., so I didn’t bump the epoch.)

git describe --long | sed 's/^v//;s/([^-]*-g)/r\1/;s/-/./g'

is used in pkgver(), then pkgver includes the release number.
