on the other hand, the upstream url should point to [], not directly to the documentation...

@amenzhinsky: you should have added armv6h (or similar). this is a compiled package - not platform independent.

Could you change architecture to 'any'?
Needed to change PKGBUILD manually on my rpi.

The update 0.6.0 is causing problems with ds4drv. See

Thanks for fixing problems. When you update the package for the next release, I suggest you use "$pkgdir" in front of paths in the package function.

1) The package conflicts with itself. That's nonsensical.

2) The license should be marked with 'custom:'

3) The files in the egg-info directory for the package have wrong permissions, they should be world-readable:

$ ls -l /usr/lib64/python3.5/site-packages/evdev-0.5.0-py3.5.egg-info/

this is a compiled package (at least part of it) so it should list individual architectures, not just "any".

LICENSE file is failing the check yet again.

LICENSE file is failing sha256 check again.

Ape commented on 2014-01-19 14:19

I think it should be

"install -Dm644 "$srcdir"/LICENSE "$pkgdir"/usr/share/licenses/$pkgname/LICENSE"

instead of

"install -Dm644 ../../LICENSE "$pkgdir"/usr/share/licenses/$pkgname/LICENSE"
