Hi, thanks for maintaining this package. There are a number of issues that I want to point out: * Version 5.0.0 is outdated, the latest released version is 5.8.0 as of writing, * I do not recommend fixing it to version 5.0.0 in pkgver() {}, * source=() should probably point to https instead of git. As such I have addressed it with the following in a patch:

Besides, this patch should make it follow the directives as mentioned here,

@askr : just done !

arthru commented on 2015-11-25 10:08 (UTC)

Hi, I just uploaded the suggested changes. Thanks @aksr and @nurfz !

They moved the to the README/ directory -> build fails with: -- Installing: /home/jakob/aur/tidy-html5-git/pkg/tidy-html5-git/usr/share/man/man1/tidy.1 install: cannot stat ‘/home/jakob/aur/tidy-html5-git/src/tidy-html5/’: No such file or directory ==> ERROR: A failure occurred in package().

I tried to override binarys name in build but it did not work (I am not that familiar with cmake...). So for now, just marking that the package conflicts with tidyhtml...

tidy-html5 5.0.0 now provides "tidy" binary instead of "tidy5" and conflicts with old tidyhtml package from official repos

arthru commented on 2015-05-04 14:47 (UTC)

Indeed, the latest tags on tidy-html5 repo made invalid version. So I just used @cirk2 proposal. Please consider using package for the latest tagged version.

cirk2 commented on 2015-05-01 08:11 (UTC)

Your pkgver() creates invalid versions (Hyphens are not allowed) Try: echo $(git rev-list --count HEAD).$(git rev-parse --short HEAD) or: echo 5.0.0.git_$(git rev-list --count HEAD).$(git rev-parse --short HEAD)

@yan12125 : I've finally found a version somewhere in the code, so I set that and appended git revision...

arthru commented on 2015-03-19 19:47 (UTC)

Well, the difficult thing is that there is no a upstream version for that...

yan12125 commented on 2015-03-19 18:52 (UTC)

Please add the pkgver() function.

arthru commented on 2015-03-04 14:50 (UTC)

I've adopted and updated the package. Enjoy !

bugix commented on 2015-03-01 11:04 (UTC)

Thanks. Please adopt if you like.

I updated the PKGBUILD to the new git-package style. Won't change too much probably.

sg0 commented on 2013-11-16 23:17 (UTC)

Thanks for your package! Would it be possible for you to update it to the latest git version, since there have been quite some fixes and small channges from April to August 2012?!

bugix commented on 2012-04-02 08:03 (UTC)

Done, thanks!

The file license was moved to the root directory of the source, so packaging fails. Please change htmldoc/license.html to license.html in package().
