Tried to install pandoc-crossref in Manjaro 21.2.4; pandoc-crossref- fails check. Probably the sha512sum should be updated.

I don't think I can make it depends=(pandoc), but I can probably make it depends=("pandoc>=${_pandoc_pkgver}"). pandoc-crossref's binary releases are compiled for specific versions of pandoc. The current version of community/pandoc is 2.14.2 but aur/pandoc-bin is Do you think it should use '>=' or '='?

If you want to use pandoc-crossref with community/pandoc you should probably use community/pandoc-crossref. If you want to use a custom pandoc you should probably compile pandoc-crossref yourself. Maybe aur/pandoc-crossref can be made?

I got the following warning message when I tried to use aur/pandoc-crossref-bin with community/pandoc:

$ pandoc -F pandoc-crossref <(curl -sSL -o demo.html
[WARNING] Could not deduce format from file extension 
  Defaulting to markdown
WARNING: pandoc-crossref was compiled with pandoc but is being run through 2.14.2. This is not supported. Strange things may (and likely will) happen silently.

Can you please change the dependencies on this to be depends=(pandoc)? It is quite likely that people than want this -bin also want that one, but there are also other options. For example I have a Pandoc fork that also has AUR packages that provide pandoc that would work. The same goes for pandoc-git which would also work.

That "history" is useless, I'm sorry but Jason should know better than that how the AUR works.

I don't know what the actual history is but it probably revolves around duplicates and somebody's choice of which direction to merge. Note that the official packages have also changed names from being prefixed with Haskell to dropping said prefix, so this was probably done at a time when they matched.

I suggest reviving the "plain" name which does make more sense. You can do so by cloning the git repo, replacing the contents with this PKGBUILD (after renaming the pkgname of course), then uploading it as a new commit. Once the new commit comes across the AUR page for it should revive. Then you can file a merge request to have this package merged into that one (which will bring votes and comments as such). Lastly once the merge is done you should bump the pkgrel and add provides/conflicts/replaces for this old name and remove them what is now the canonical name.

Thankx eNV25. For some history:

I picked with package up because I thought it wouldn't be too hard to maintain.

I don't know why this package is called haskell-pandoc-crossref-bin and not pandoc-crossref-bin. pandoc-crossref-bin doesn't exist and the community package is called pandoc-crossref.

Looks like it is now possible to update.

jadelord commented on 2021-03-24 09:13 (UTC)

I am willing to update this package, but I am waiting for pandoc-bin to update. Otherwise I might break compatibility.
