how do you change the program to open packagebuilds for review in? The man page doesnt seem to mention it.

actionless commented on 2018-08-28 18:27

i see, it should 80 characters, however i guess it will be better to leave pacaur and other inspirations in the description, because i think they're much more useful for understanding what the application does (otherwise description could raise either even bigger or less clear)

also it seems what directly specifying inspirations is not a considered to be a bad practice in official repos: pacman -Ss | grep -i "inspired" -B 1

I'll update the description soon after will come up how to shrink it all to 80 chars

I'd suggest to shorten the overly long description of the package as per Wiki guidelines.

At least, you should probably remove "inspired by pacaur, yaourt and yay" and make use of keywords instead.

@Blissfull thanks, updated

Might be a good idea to do a revision bump for python 3.7.

are you using the latest pikaur version (0.14.6)?

that should be addressed already in

if not please create a new issue on github with more details how to reproduce it

jkoestinger commented on 2018-07-02 07:00

I got an error when running pikaur -Syu (KeyError: 'java-runtime'). It seems that jre10 is not used by pikaur. It works now that jre7 or jre8 is installed (tried with both). Shouldn't it be marked as a dependencie? (or am I wrong about the cause of this error?)

Nice job for that helper though :)
