No, it has conflicts=("nerd-fonts"), and other single font packs have provides=("nerd-fonts"), so I can't install this alongside say, cascadia code (which is what I was doing)

@Sacro: This only conflicts with the full Nerd Font packages that contain this font.

Sacro commented on 2022-09-17 20:27 (UTC)

Please don't conflict with other "nerd-fonts", some of us want to install multiple of them!

@simon.wiles: Thanks for providing a better explanation.

Sorry for the mix-up, folks.

@tucuxi -- no, we're all good now; the issue was that fonts previously required a post-install script to update the font cache, etc. This script would depend on mkfontscale etc., but this is no longer required (as per the wiki). The temporary problem was that the dependencies were removed but the (now unnecessary) script was not. @yochananmarqos has removed it now, so there shouldn't be further problems. Thanks again!

I believe you misunderstood the Wiki entry, @yochananmarqos. It does not mean that is okay for font packages to depend on something and not declare dependencies. Font packages simply should not have any dependencies. They really don't need anything.

@yachananmarqos -- I was reflecting on your "Nothing has changed and fonts do not require any dependencies" comment; I hit the same issue as @tucuxi -- I couldn't install the package without first installing xorg-mkfontscale, because it had been removed from makedepends. Thank you!

@simon.wiles: Yes, they were purposely removed. See the Arch wiki link I posted below.

I had forgotten to remove the install file earlier, it's gone now.

For some reason makedepends() was removed in commit 3eaf56a9 prior to the release of version 2.2.0. @tucuxi @yochananmarqos.

If it's a make dependency, declare it.
