I cannot build this package, after trying to download stuff in build() it abords after many tens of minutes.

I have a slow internet connection, and the downloader that is invoked in build() to download more code aborts after not finishing after some time.

Can you please fix it to have the necessary stuff downloaded via the downloaders configured for makepkg, i.e. using the sources-array?

This PKGBUILD downloads stuff during build(). This should not happen, build() should work without internet.

Please make everything needed to build be ready after prepare(). Use the sources-array and, if this is not possible, as an exception the prepare-function.

Please realize that this is a git package and as such follows the guidelines from In particular it makes use of the pkgver() function. This means that once it downloads the LATEST version of the source code from the git repository, it will update the version number of the package automatically. There are two consonances to this: -the good part is, that when there is a new version pushed to git, you can just run makepkg again the package will "automagically" change the version and include the latest git source -the bad part is that on the aur website and in aur helpers (yaorut & co.) the package always shows the original version used aka. it looks outdated. Also in the helpers you don't get the benefit of being able to automatically update, since the version does not noticeably change. In an event of a major bugfix or version change the package version might be bumped up for the benefit of the helper users. But in general you should expect needing to manually rebuild the package. At least until (if ever) a better system for addressing this issue can be discovered.

Right now it builds version v0.9.3.c9b74a765767.r0.g3cbb433-1. Package version in AUR description is different.
