In case that perl-gtk2-unique prevents the perl update to 5.28, please remove perl-gtk2-unique

pacman -Rdd perl-gtk2-unique

then do the update and then install it again

$YOUR_FAVORITE_AUR_HELPER -S perl-gtk2-unique

In case there is a better solution, please let me know! :)

Re: the "installing perl (5.28.0-1) breaks dependency 'perl<5.27' required by perl-gtk2-unique" error, @PhotonX's solution worked for me (thanks!). The first update updated a gazillion (336!) packages which took a few minutes. Afterward, I reinstalled "perl-gtk2-unique" using pacaur, and all appeared to be well. :-)

Regarding aur-general archives 2018-June/034142 and aur-general archives 2018-June/0341449 it isn't necessary.

OTOH taking a look at 'pacman -Qm' I even found something like soundhelix commit [8f2fa8be973e](

My preference is as Vrakfall commented on 2018-08-06 13:44, "Bumping for updates on Arch stable only seems like a good idea".

However, not incrementing the pkgrel obviously is correct.

PhotonX commented on 2018-08-07 12:51

Right, I didn't notice the URL difference in your comment, sorry. :)

Concerning the bump, see my discussion with Vrakfall. Also, due to the version check perl-gtk2-unique needs to be removed such that perl can be installed at all, so the bump is not necessary, right?

There's no need to test it, this is exactly how I build the package, see my comment from 2018-08-07 02:55. Btw. I incremented the pkgrel to 23, since we need to build against the new version of perl, not regarding the fixed URL.

@Ralf_Mardorf: I pushed a silent update, could you check if it works now?

@Ralf_Mardorf: Actually, it shouldn't make a difference and I cannot reproduce the problem. Which error did you get when trying to build the package?

Ralf_Mardorf commented on 2018-08-07 02:55

I got a failure while downloading, so I replaced the source with "${_cpanname}-${pkgver}.tar.gz" and incremented the pkgrel to 23.

Vrakfall commented on 2018-08-06 16:46

@PhotonX I don't know. :P Who has time anyway? Tho, it's probably possible for AUR packages already.

PhotonX commented on 2018-08-06 15:04

Yeah, basically, the perl packages should be rebuild directly at perl updates which is only possible if they are prebuild by repo maintainers rather than build at the users' machines.

Binary repos with automated commits would be a very elegant solution but who is knowledgeable enough and at the same time has enough time to do it?
