That would work for the initial submission of the package, but in my experience, when you update the PKGBUILD, you'll need to bump pkgver to the most recent value, and append -2. Otherwise, package managers such as pacaur don't see the new version as being greater than the installed version, and it's never updated on users' systems.

I saw that, but I thought it might be quite misleading to set `pkgver` to some revision that won't really be installed in the end. With `pkgver=current` or `pkgver=latest` it's clear that this pkgbuild doesn't install any specific revision. In the forums it was even once suggested to just set it to `0`. [1] Are there any benefits in setting pkgver to the latest revision at the time of creating the pkgbuild?

Oops, sorry, I forgot to enable notifications. That looks great. However, as per the wiki,

> you still need to declare the pkgver variable with the most recent value

So the first pkgver variable should be declared as

pkgver=0.6.0.r31.g1039b31

@Rhinoceros Thank you for pointing this out to me and also for the reminder - I completely missed your first post on this topic. I updated the PKGBUILDs now.

Just a reminder that this PKGBUILD (and vokabeltrainer-git) are still broken.

> you might want to have a read of how the pkgver function should work for VCS files [1]. This will keeps the installed version correct, and prevents unnecessary upgrades. Cheers.
