I'll wait it out then...

Have a nice holiday and thx for the clarification!

Picard does not work with the most recent mutagen at the moment ( / I'm going on vacation for a week later today, so I can't update the PKGBUILD, but Freso should be able to update the package.

Does this still work? I cannot compile anymore - I get this error...

File "/tmp/makepkg/picard-git/src/picard/picard/formats/mutagenext/", line 25, in <module>
from mutagen.id3 import ID3, Frames, Frames_2_2, TextFrame, TORY, \
ImportError: cannot import name BitPaddedInt

Any ideas or does anyone have the same problems?

thx for reading, p

Yo Mineo, can you make me co-maintainer and/or update the $source URL to reflect that the Picard repositories are now under the @metabrainz GitHub org.? :)

Mineo commented on 2015-09-24 07:13

phw: Done.

A .install file similar to would be nice so icons get updated after installation.

The stable picard package now includes the plugins from the contrib folder.
It would be nice if the -git package would do the same.

lockheed (and others): Picard's Git repository is managed on GitHub. If you want to have your own patchsets applied to the code, it's really easy to "fork" Picard, apply your patches, and tell your copy of this PKGBUILD to use your forked copy of the picard source tree instead of the official one: Simply find the line starting with "_gitroot" (line 15 at the moment) and replace "musicbrainz" with your GitHub user name. Save and "makepkg". Voila!

Thanks Mineo; and I just realized my last sentence didn't make much sense, I was typing too fast but glad you understood anyway :)! --> s/in the depends line this error/in the depends line would avoid this error/

lockheed: No, I won't apply any patches to this, but if you need it, you can always modify the PKGBUILD before building your package.

Montague: I'll update the PKGBUILD.

Would it be possible to implement 'Preserve file timestamps' upon rename?
I found a patch for it here:

I get this error :
$ packer -S picard-git --> Dependency `python2-qt' of `picard-git' does not exist.

Easy to fix it : "packer -S python2-pyqt" followed by "packer -S picard-git"

But maybe changing 'python2-qt' to 'python2-pyqt' in the depends line this error altogether?

Might be worth adding chromaprint as an optdepend on this to alert people to the AcoustID option, especially since PUIDs have a nasty tendency for not working.
