I have triggered this package to become orphaned, so a new volunteer can adopt it and update it.

EndlessEden commented on 2021-08-01 02:43 (UTC) (edited on 2021-08-01 03:05 (UTC) by EndlessEden) - Please update the URL and SRC to reflect the new location, As well as update the dependencies to match.

url="" depends=('python>=3.6' 'pacman>=5' '') makedepends=('git' 'python-setuptools' 'python-pkgconfig' 'python-sphinx') source=('git+')

Also, testing suggests "pytest-pacman-git" is also required, but its not mentioned. - it would not build on my test platform without it.

Orphaned - switched back to extra/pyalpm.

@bartus: Thank you for the patch. I've applied the fix about python-setuptools. Howver, I'm concerned about using pacman -Q in PKGBUILD. Instead, I created another package that tracks the 'next' branch of pyalpm and is compatible with pacman-git.

bartus commented on 2019-08-27 12:42 (UTC)

@yan12125: I've been using pacman-git for a few months now, and really starts missing features relaying on pyalpm (namcap,aurman). Are you stand by what you've told @eli-schwartz, or would you consider incorporating some slick patch to allow users build pyalpm-git with both pacman and pacman-git.

Here's my suggestion: [***]

Have no idea, how far we are form next pacman release, but last commit on says Prepare translations for next release, so perhaps sooner than later ;)

yan12125 commented on 2019-01-19 06:56 (UTC)

I'd like to keep the compatibility with the stable pacman. I remember the last time I installed pacman-git, many software broke as they worked with the stable pacman only. If there's a patch working for both pacman-git and pacman, I'm glad to add it into this package even if it's not merged upstream.

eschwartz commented on 2019-01-18 14:58 (UTC)

In order to work with pacman-git>=5.1.1.r103.ge9d91a68 the following backwards-incompatible patch is needed:

Don't know whether it makes sense to depend on pacman-git for this purpose though.

yan12125 commented on 2016-01-31 13:39 (UTC)

Thanks updated. Now pyalpm-git requires pacman>=5 or above, which is in [testing] only. Just skip updating pyalpm-git before pacman 5 hits [core]

please add this patch greetings

yan12125 commented on 2015-03-03 04:33 (UTC)

Thanks. Adopt and update.

falconindy commented on 2015-03-02 13:35 (UTC)

Disowned. Feel free to update.

yan12125 commented on 2015-03-02 09:49 (UTC)

Also, please use `git describe --long --tags` instead of `git describe` in pkgver() as what [1] suggests. [1]

yan12125 commented on 2015-03-02 09:44 (UTC)

Please use provides=("pyalpm=$pkgver") so that it can be used with namcap, which requires pyalpm>=0.5

ok this explains it: [pacman-dev] [PATCH v2 4/7] Remove log_cb, add ALPM_EVENT_LOG instead
