@petronny Good catch, I hadn't noticed that. However, that diff is backwards, from 1.8.1 to 1.7.12, meaning that the Github workflow installed r-roxygen2 and r-pkgbuild in 1.7.12, but those were removed in 1.8.1. And as you said, those were only used with the bundled icu, which isn't used in this AUR package.

@peippo Upstream having a CI workflow that installs those packages does not mean that the packages are actually needed. The package metadata in the DESCRIPTION file determines the dependencies.

I see r-roxygen2 and r-pkgbuild are needed to build the r-icu bundle, not r-stringi. I don't see any other change suggests r-roxygen2 and r-pkgbuild are needed for r-stringi.

@peippo How is the diff relevant to this discussion? All the documentation is already pre-generated in the source archive, so r-roxygen2 is not needed during package build. Also I don't see any mentions of r-pkgbuild or r-cpp11 in the sources, so those are not needed either.

The dependency cycle now prevents building r-stringi and r-roxygen2.

Why the addition of r-roxygen2 and r-pkgbuild into makedepends? Those packages aren't needed, and this also created a dependency cycle, since r-roxygen2 depends on r-stringi.

r-cpp11 is also not needed in depends.

Hi, the source 404's, due to the r package being updated.

Hello, thanks for maintaining this package. Recently this package was broken because of icu update and it had to be recompiled. Can you consider adding a direct dependency to a

I'm leaving maintenance and support for this package in favor of new repository. You can install pre-built packages from my repo
