Yes that makes sense - that PKGBUILD will pull the current one. I was facing a proxy issue, which was avoided by just manually downloading the sources myself and then building from there. It isn't something I normally do, and that's what made me notice the difference in what is listed by the AUR as the source. I don't maintain packages, so I don't really know how it works, or how common it is that there is a difference between what's listed and what the PKGBUILD says. Thanks for responding so quick, and thanks for keeping this current!

@dietchrst The PKGBUILD is correct. It will build the 2016.11 upstream release (which is the current one, not 2016.12).

The AUR is reporting the version (and corresponding "Sources") as 2015.06 and I'm not sure what is causing that. If you've got suggestions for that, you can make an issue or pull request on GitHub:

the source listed here is wrong for the current package. I have to manually download the sources, and the rakudo-star-2015.06.tar.gz is behind the current one (2016.12). It was easy to get the correct one, but might be confusing.

Thanks @blippy. You're correct. Update has been pushed.

I think your checksum is wrong:
sha512sum rakudo-star-2016.11.tar.gz

Thanks @moyamo, I forgot to update the checksum when changing the source version. PKGBUILD has been updated.

I think the sha512 sum is wrong. It should be

@alx741 As of the 2016.01 version I've had an issue open on GitHub which I've yet to resolve

This package is broken. perl6 yields errors on my machine:

$ perl6
/usr/bin/perl6: line 2: /tmp/yaourt-tmp-tester/aur-rakudo-star/src/rakudo-star-2015.11/install/bin/moar: No such file or directory

It looks like it searches for moar in the temporary build directory instead of /usr/bin. Perhaps because the whole packaging process is merely a

cp "$srcdir"/"$pkgname-$pkgver"/install/bin/* /usr/bin/
