@MarsSeed Sorry for the late response.

I removed it from provides. The source is now commit-specific.

The dir is still renamed to the package's name. I presume that's what you meant.

Since this is a end-user binary package, dependents aren't expected. It's depended on in my dotfiles: https://github.com/Icelk/dotfiles/blob/78a2d303db1e52ee0523f3bc4c51ffba194e944c/packages/installed.txt#L153

And don't rename the repo directory please.

MarsSeed commented on 2023-10-14 09:12 (UTC)

Hm, also please eliminate using git checkout. Declare the source commit in the source=() array.

On AUR, I don't see any packages that depend specifically on this one. Which are the ones that only work properly with this?

MarsSeed commented on 2023-10-14 09:10 (UTC)

Noted. Thank you for replying.

Is there a bug report about the issues at upstream's GitHub and in Arch bug tracking system?

Also, if this is API-incomlatible, then it shouldn't provide 'swaylock', as it's not a drop-in replacement. Downstream dependents should expect either this, or repo 's swaylock, but not let the user decide which to use with that.

@MarsSeed please see the comment below

There has been a delete request to this package. It's still needed, since modern swaylock uses a different API which limits certain use-cases, such as transparent lock screens.
