orphaning, maintain it yourself

Yes, please don't bump because of upstream changes but only when PKGBUILD needs modification or maybe a very important upstream change happened. I have 12 svn/git packages and this is the only one against this convention.

This is a convention between most VCS packages. Some examples:

Only bump when you change packaging things.

haawda commented on 2016-08-03 13:27

The bumps are not redundant. They follow upstream changes.

Please don't bump the version redundantly: it makes unneeded git repository histories, and we're normally should not be forced to update (with an AUR helper).

If any scribus package from AUR fails to launch, try installing libwmf.

I hate packages polluting my system with being installed in /opt, except it is absolutely needed, and I think AUR-packages should not be made this way. What you have on your own computer is your choice. Feel free to use customizepkg or so to archieve this.

Since this is not stable yet, maybe it would be better to install in /opt, or change the PKGBUILD so scribus 1.4 and scribus 1.5 can co-exist in the same system.

For example I would like to edit a book in Scribus 1.4 and use scribus 1.5 only for exporting to PDF/X-1a, the only really compatible format for Print on Demand.

What do you think?

Well, pacman-x-pro is untouched since 2013, and does not work at all here, so I cannot confirm. But anyway, there _are_ no dots, hyphens or empty spaces in $pkgver.

Pacman -A is a command from pacman-x-pro, to install directly from AUR something like yaourt
