I patched poweroff.jl to user more sane defaults. These can be overridden, but anyway.

Fails to build with out emacs, though it's not marked as a dep...

librep has been moved from [community] to AUR and looks for a maintainer :)

Seems the homepage is not yet updated.

Most users of sawfish are also emacs users, I'd suggest placing 'emacs' in makedepends and byte-compile & install sawfish.el.

Please remove rm -r $pkgdir/usr/share/apps from package build since this is no longer created during compile

adambot commented on 2012-04-09 15:07

Please add libxtst to the dependencies, it is not part of base-devel and is required for build.

I get this error on install:

was able to work about by touching the file while it built.

Split packages in AUR are still trcky to write (the PKGBUILD of handbrake-svn does such things). And at least the git versions of sawfish support some other DEs than just KDE and gnome, also mate and razor-qt.

I couldn’t build sawfish, because rm could not find one file:

rm: impossible de supprimer « /tmp/yaourt-tmp-dthiriet/aur-sawfish/pkg/usr/share/kde4 »: Aucun fichier ou dossier de ce type (i.e. no such file or directory)

Would it be possible to split sawfish into 3 packages, sawfish-core, sawfish-gnome and sawfish-kde for standalone version, gnome integration and kde integration?
This is just a suggestion, I am quite bad at doing pkgbuilds (I had lot of problems to make mine and it was just based on one file), but I think this would solve that kind of problem.
