Nicely done! :-) I'd vote however to make the PKGBUILD skip the checksum test for the config.h At least on my workflow this is the better way to handle it.

And thanks for this link! :-)

If you are not aware of it already, here is a highly recommended read about suckless surf:

Thank you sekret.

I have adopted the package.

  • Added tabbed (you could also use tabbed-git) as an optional dependency.
  • PKGBUILD now supports patches: simply include the patch in the main directory, add the name to the source array in PKGBUILD, run updpkgsums, and then build. The patch should apply automatically, provided that it is a git version patch.

Somehow surf isn't usable for me anymore. I actually don't even use it, so it's best if somebody with more interest takes care of this package.

Big update, now surf uses webkit2gtk. You'll also see that things changed on the surface :-)

Ah, silly me. Thanks!

Yes it does. By default the config.h is being ignored. But if you take a look at the prepare() function you'll see that I commented the line which changes this behavior.

config.h appears to get ignored when the package is built.

Changed the pkgver to something more appropriate and changed the prepare function, because the previous one was ugly and failed if SRCDEST was set in /etc/makepkg.conf to a custom directory (which I have now, that's why I noticed).

Adopted and changed optional dependency xterm to st, since that's the default now.

I'm not sure about the prepare function, but it seems to work fine, so I'll leave it as it is for now.
