Please don't flag this package out-of-date just because the version number displayed on AUR seems old. This is normal for VCS packages. As long as building the package works without problems, it isn't necessary to update the PKGBUILD here. makepkg will automatically retrieve the latest version when you build the package locally.

@eclairevoyant Can you add lua51-lpeg as a normal dependency instead of a make dependency? Neovim needs it as a shared library in runtime.

I'm getting this error when building:

/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -llpeg: No such file or directory

I think it might be related to this commit but I do not know how to fix it. Any ideas?

upstream issue for the mpack build failure:

eclairevoyant commented on 2023-04-20 10:20 (UTC)

yeah, normally the way to avoid your current system's packages affecting the build environment is by building in a clean chroot

UPDATE: It works now. Had to manually remove lua51-mpack and then reinstall neovim-git. Thanks again.

Thanks for the amazing speed @eclairevoyant. Unfortunately I still get the same error.

There is a build failure:

/usr/bin/luajit: ...-git/src/neovim/src/nvim/generators/gen_api_dispatch.lua:196: attempt to call field 'encode' (a nil value)

I am guessing it is due to this commit and is related to mpack. Don't know how to fix it, though. Any ideas?

If you submit an orphan request for a package that's been out of date more than some threshold (I believe 6 months?) then it will automatically get orphaned. Thanks for reaching out.

@eclairevoyant Thanks!

About the hypothetical package, I was suggesting it before I found out abandoned packages could be adopted so easily; I think it would have some hypothetical differences (more stability of neovim and the aur package, etc.) over the nightly binaries and master, but not substantial enough.

@REmorin I've orphaned and adopted neovim-nightly-bin, I can fix the issues there.

Regarding your suggested hypothetical package, rule #1 of the AUR is it should be a useful package; is there some substantial difference with using the nightly branch instead of the master branch?
