WorMzy's repo is more up to date and contains fixes for systemd installation needed by Arch.

you should use the official git repo:

I interpret that to mean that the tag and the revision should be easily discernible, which I feel is achieved by using underscores. Incidentally, pacman treats periods and underscores the same way, i.e. they're interchangeable, so no epoch is needed for this change. $ vercmp 1.1.1 1.1_1 0 In any case, I avoid using epoch on AUR packages, as I feel it encourages reliance on AUR helpers.

Well, see the VCS PKGBUILD Guidelines on the wiki: You should prefix the last component with an 'r' and use '.' between all components. Also, when changing the numbering format for a package, you should bump the epoch= value in the PKGBUILD so as to avoid pacman treating the newer version as an outdated version.

I'd prefer not to. I felt that was confusing, and made it appear as though the commits (4) was part of the tag (1.3.6). Do you have any reasoning to support the use of periods over underscores, or is it just personal preference?

Please change pkgver() in PKGBUILD back from: echo $(git describe --tags) | sed -e 's:v::' -e 's:-:_:g' to echo $(git describe --tags) | sed -e 's:v::' -e 's:-:.:g' Note the underscore vs. dot.

I hadn't noticed that. I've uploaded a mirror to github and pointed the PKGBUILD at it for now. If anyone knows of an active mirror/fork, please let me know and I'll update the PKGBUILD to use it.

Apparently the hosting site (Berlios) shut down its services in January 2014. Does anyone know if there's still an upstream maintainer?
