Thanks for maintaining this package.

@smorks: I was able to install repman with the latest version of paru (2.0).

In the meantime, I did some tests. It turned out that also yay does not seem to handle architecture-specific dependencies properly (see this issue). However, I was able to install repman with trizen :-)

@smorks: repman is available for the architectures x86_64 and Aarch64. Each of these architectures requires a different version of the Arch Linux devtools package (x86_64 requires the package devtools, Aarch64 requires the devtools-alarm package from Arch Linux ARM - and btw: different from what @nachtjasmin wrote in his/her comment, this package exists as you can see here). In the repman PKGBUILD, the architecture-specific declaration of dependencies is done as described in the PKGBUILD doc. Thus, I suspect, that paru does not handle architecture-specific dependencies correctly. To verify this, I suggest that you try out a different AUR helper - maybe yay.

@nachtjasmin: I could not reproduce the problem. Which command(s) do you execute and which error message do you get?

@mipi: i think i can shed some light on this. when i just clone and build directly from the AUR using git, it works fine. however, using an AUR helper (i'm using paru), it complains about the devtools-alarm package missing:

error: could not find all required packages: devtools-alarm (wanted by: repman)

so i'm not sure if this is an issue with this package or with paru.

The devtools-alarm package does not exist, causing the installation to fail even on x64 systems.
