buttcake: No - it's not required, and the scenario is too uncommon to even add it as an optional dependency.

Shouldn't this require python-opengl as of ?

Sorry this took so long - but the repo URL is now up-to-date (not that it'd make any difference :P), the pkgver check for qt5-webkit is removed, and userscripts are installed so that ":spawn -u" works for the ones in the repo.

As for the pkgver, I want to wait until v0.10.1 so I can test how to handle the tags correctly, see

I second lucc's request to change the pkgver(). From you can see, that it is recommended to use the following for packages with tags:
pkgver() {
cd "$pkgname"
# cutting off 'v' prefix that presents in the git tag
git describe --long | sed 's/^v//;s/\([^-]*-g\)/r\1/;s/-/./g'
This provides something in the likes of 0.9.0.r277.g79d22f250

I have not tested, if it demands to increment the pkgrel.

Could you use "git describe" in pkgver(). It has the advantage to include tag names into the output and hence the version number of aur/qutebrowser-git would better compare to the one of commuinty/qutebrowser.

For comparison, I get these kinds of version strings from other packages (pacman -Q|grep -e '-git '):
afew-git 1:0.242.b19a88f-1
i3pystatus-git 3.35.r179.g82555cb-1
mblaze-git r486.113445d-1
qutebrowser-git r11145.e487fe441-1
texlive-localmanager-git 0.5.1.r0.g6befd1e-1
vimpager-git 2.06.r337.ga7d18ce-1
zsh-history-substring-search-git 1:117.aae3388-1

It also seems that you would not even have to update (use) the epoch of the package as pacsort is happy to consider the new format I imagine a newer version. I tried this by updating the pkgver() like this (and some other variants):
pkgver() {
cd "$srcdir/qutebrowser"
local ver=$(git describe)
printf %s "$ver"
then executed makepkg and finally ask pacsort what it considers the newest version:
$ ls qute*xz|pacsort

(Please note that the 0.9.0 is due to issue #2284.)

Currently it is not possible to use qutebrowser with the qt5-webkit-ng package because of the versioned dependency of qt5-webkit, forcing users to use the old
insecure qt5-webkit package. Please remove the version from the dependency: qt5-webkit provides "qt5-webkit" as well.

Please switch to the new official repository:

Could you also install some things from the misc folder? Especially the userscripts, maybe to /usr/share/qutebrowser/userscripts. And maybe also the cheatsheet to some docs folder. I don't know if any of the other files would be interesting.

@ainola Thanks for the heads-up, done!

Hi, The-Compiler! Pacman now automatically performs post-install hooks so you can safely remove the .install file entirely.
