Hmm, thanks. I'm still not sure why it should be added, or why it's not part of base-devel if packaging standards demand it. I'll ask on IRC about it.

I removed it because it didn't seem essential to building. You can still have the package installed if you want to build it that way.

Why remove the hardening-wrapper makedep?

Conflicts are added to devel/VCS packages.

BlueSpirit, the "1:" is an epoch[]. Read 3 comments back for why we're on 2.4.1. (Edit: This is the stable release.)

Why is there an 1: in front of the "real" version number? This confuses pacaur which thinks 1:2.4.1 is newer than 2.5.3 ;)

Fantastic.. Hopefully these versions have been stable enough, and caused no issues. Thank you for pointing this out, kyb.

If you want to use the dev version: just download this[], add -dev to the pkgname, add yourself as maintainer, and presto magico. Edit: Also bump the pkgver if there's an update by then.

It could be cool to select the version while installing

The lastest stable version is 2.4.1 and development 2.5.3-dev. You may alse type stable or dev as aliases to the lastest verions.
please select version (

Does this work with GPT (UEFI) disks? From what I understand, first is the MBR, followed by the GPT, right? Well, I have a backup copy so I guess I will just try it...

new version is marked as development
