Disregard my last. Rookie mistake. I just put the one 'SKIP' but forgot to include the md5sums for all the other stuff in sources like in this package. Oops.

Just a question for the maintainer. I modified your pkgbuild to build the latest from SVN. My question is how do I get it to skip integrity checks. I know I can do makepkg --skipinteg but I want it in the pkgbuild so I can share it here. I tried md5sums=('SKIP') immediately after the sources but that didn't work.

Yes, we have to put up with this crazy practice where the upstream developers release new changes in the same version file(!). I have updated the md5sum.

Looks like the source tarball on sourceforge might have changed in-place :( The md5sum no longer matches.

By making 'snack' and 'tdom' optional I think we need to add 'tk' to dependencies. 'tk' was installed by 'snack' before and is necessary for 'scid_vs_pc'. See 'scid' for reference:

@bulletmark, the package is indeed out-of-date - 4.20 is out:

bulletmark commented on 2019-03-27 07:56 (UTC)

@andmars, please don't flag out of date unless it is out of date. I have made snack and tdom optional because snack provides sound but I find that it is very buggy and I see the scid_vs_pc sources mention this in many places and at tdom is required only for Xfcc support which is only used by some correspondence chess servers.

Can you make dependencies like "snack" optional? All that scid really needs is the "tk" package (and "python" and "desktop-file-utils" which most users have installed anyways. That way it doesn't pull so much stuff in :-)

@bruno: Yes, it works fine.

Package tdom-git doesn't even exist. Does someone here know if it works with tdom?
