Package moved to new AUR.

Updated dependencies and versioning to be compatible with gnome 3.10. Also added dynamic version function to PKGBUILD so the version updates whenever you build the package.

Set the branch to gnome-3-6 so it is pulling from git with python2 support. If we try and use the python3 version of orca, you would need to update at-spi2-core to version 2.5.2 or greater. Currently Arch is using at-spi2-core 2.4.2 even with the testing repository enabled. Also found it necessary to add yelp-tools as a make dependency to build successfully.

Changed the git source back to the normal master branch; revised dependencies to conform to latest Orca changes.

I just looked at the PKGBUILD in AUR and it does contain gnome-doc-utils as one of the makedepend elements. Just adding this to the makedepends variable shouldn't have changed anything unless you specifically install gnome-doc-utils. It's hard for me to verify this further because I already have gnome-doc-utils installed on my system and it is a dependency for at-spi2-core or one of those related packages. Anyway, this package should work in its present form. Can anyone else confirm these observations?

When I ran this script, I recieved a message durring the build-configure process that gnome-dog-utils was needed to build the package. Adding 'gnome-doc-utils' to the builddepends allowed the package to build successfully.

This PKGBUILD pulls git source from the gnome-3-0 branch currently being used for Orca 3.0. Also, the dependencies are in line with what are set for Arch's production package of Orca. Let me know if these should be tweaked further.

Updated the PKGBUILD to support python2 due to the recent python 2.7 migration.
