Hi @MarsSeed, indeed you are right. However luckily, 16.beta2 < 16.0 (*) and looking at the past postgresql releases, the next release will probably be 16.1, so for the moment I will leave it like this and hope for the best :)

(*) Upstream uses a weird tag convention (REL_16_BETA2 in this case) so I put a "dot" where it shouldn't be... I will be keeping an eye on this. So far the pkgver is increasing (I checked the last commit as of today).

Edit: I forgot to add that the next official release of postgresql will likely be 16.0 and not 16 (I do not know why I looked at the arch releases), so the pkgver should still be monotonic, but let's see.

Hi, @a821,

I would just like to point your attention to the fact that pacman considers this 16.beta2 version to be newer than the prospective version 16.

The beta pkgver suffix is only lower than the unsuffixed number if there is no separator character between the number and the alphabetic part:

16beta2 < 16 < 16.beta2

You'd have to do some magic to targetedly eliminate the separator character before a possible alphabetical version tag suffix. Maybe something like I did earlier in this PKGBUILD

upstream has dropped support for python2, please remove all references to it.

Is there a way to drop the python2 requirements?

Needs a few tweaks to work with PostgreSQL 10: postgresql-check-db-dir: PGMAJORVERSION=10 PGMAJORVERSION=9.6 postgresql.service needs 'RuntimeDirectory=postgresql' in [Service] section
