I've been out of town most of the weekend, if you'd like me to maintain it I'd be more than happy to!

EDIT: I'm a co-maintainer, that should be enough assuming you don't mind being the official maintainer.

The package has been an orphan for some days. I waited for @krakn to take control but since he didn't I adopted it.

I used his PKGBUILD but unfortunately check() fails (at least for me). This seems to be a problem with one of the submodules and not the PKGBUILD itself.

If someone else wants to take control I can disown the package.

can you add the package "check" to the depends list please

makedepends=('check' 'git' 'meson')

Updated the PKGBUILD here:

I wouldn't mind co-maintaining this if it doesn't bother you. I use rofi daily and rebuild my git packages almost weekly.

librsvg should be a (build) dependency now also?

Rasi commented on 2017-04-30 20:17

Please add "check" to make dependencies
Alternatively disable check with --disable-check

Shibumi commented on 2017-03-04 13:11

please add sysconfdir=/etc to the buildprocess

I got the error above. I try googling and it seems to be more of a system issue than specific to the package. I dig up in libharfbuzz, proceeded to install harfbuzz package, but no luck! Any input appreciated
