I've picked this package up (as I'm a regular contributor to upstream). This is the first AUR package I'm maintaining, so please let me know if something's messed up.

Note that most people probably don't want this package, but rather e.g. the dotnet-sdk-2.0 package. That carries the dotnet CLI (which includes csc/vbc, aka Roslyn). Only install this package if you want a build of csc from the absolute newest master branch of Roslyn. (dotnet-sdk-2.0 is actually a dependency of this package, as a recent C# compiler is needed to compile Roslyn, as Roslyn is written in C#)

Wow, this is my package? I'm just going to abandon this, if someone else wants to pick it up, by all means do so.

What's the status of this package?

It doesn't build and it needs a lot of work to build.

1. It should just point at roslyn (not at mono roslyn)
2. As of today - roslyn does not support building in arch, tries to "detect" from /etc/os-release and VERSION_ID
3. needs undocumented libunwind and icu of certain levels for packages
4. At which point if you can apply a patch to override OS and have libunwind/icu installed - the "roslyn" version are not and you'll get a CoreCLR failure

still doesn't build...

getting loads of these...

obj/Release/Syntax.xml.Generated.cs(66406,67): error CS0246: The type or namespace name `SyntaxToken' could not be found. Are you missing `Microsoft.CodeAnalysis.CSharp.Syntax.InternalSyntax' using directive?

The previous issue can actually be resolved by changing Src to src. However this leads to another issue:

==> Starting build()...

Seems like there were some incompatible changes in upstream:

==> Starting build()...
Cannot open assembly 'Src/.nuget/NuGet.exe': No such file or directory.
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in build().
