A recent commit to remove GITFLAGS support seems to have broken use cases that rely on git --mirror. I think the author left in a dash sign that was part of the ${GITFLAGS:-...} substition, leading to error: unknown option '-mirror'

I can build pacman-git in my usual environment for a specific git commit branch. I fail building it in a clean environment using devtools. Any suggestions are appreciated.

Specifically, with

$ git clone
$ cd pacman-git/
$ makepkg --nobuild
$ cd src/pacman/
$ git switch -c 6.1.0 e3dc296ba35
$ cd ../../
$ makepkg --noextract

I get a pacman-git-6.1.0.r0.ge3dc296b-1 package.

My question is how to use devtools to create the same package within a clean environment?

While the 6.1.0 branch, at the e3dc296ba35 commit from above, is checked out, something like

# mkarchroot chroot/root base-devel
# makechrootpkg -c -u -r chroot -- --holdver

only produces a pacman-git-6.1.0.r49.g8aba032d-1 package. 8aba032d is the head of the master git branch at the time of writing. Am I doing something wrong? Is there a devtools bug?

Needs debugedit as a dependency for makepkg's strip to work, since

fixed, this was overlooked in my initial #archlinuxarm discussion but is now excluded in their pacman update.

fcf-protection is not valid for ARM targets. This is added to the ARM makepkg.conf which then makes compiles fail.

Fixed, see commit message. :(

The most recent PKGBUILD commit from today breaks the integrity checks for all four additional files. Needed to update the hashes before building.

The cargo cult of libdepends strikes again...

And if it did provide, it wouldn't help you since this is the git version which means any ABI-breaking changes won't bump the soname until release time, thus, depending on a soname version achieves precisely nothing.

I guess I could provide a (meaningless), but... I've got no idea if these packages access APIs which have been changed in pacman 6.0.0alpha1, in which case it will hardly help.

The fact this package doesn't provide like the [core] one does has now started causing issues.

Both arch-audit and arch-rebuild-order depends on it.

The changes are included. This package will never show a version number for maintenance-only backport releases that were never tagged from the master branch.

And thanks for testing it!
