That's all folks!

fenuks, I prefer to leave arch=() to the officially supported arch/es, and use makepkg's -A option for the rest.

static_n00b, built fine for me in a container:

fenuks commented on 2020-10-19 20:01

@polyzen Could you please add more architectures (I have it running on aarch64).

polyzen commented on 2020-10-13 04:09

Deleted the sources, did a clean build, and now my pkgver has fallen in line ┐(ツ)┌.

btmcg commented on 2020-10-13 02:41

Can confirm I see the exact results as @pepper_chico and @kseistrup.

ctags $ git describe --long --tags
ctags $ git describe --long --tags | sed 's/^p//;s/\([^-]*-g\)/r\1/;s/-/./g'

SolarAquarion commented on 2020-10-13 02:28

there's only one tag

pepper_chico commented on 2020-10-13 01:52

@polyzen just not sure what's happening, except that the git describe/sed result in your machine is one character longer than ours.

polyzen commented on 2020-10-13 00:38

If tag contains a prefix, like v or project name then it should be cut off:

    pkgver() {
      cd "$pkgname"
      # cutting off 'foo-' prefix that presents in the git tag
      git describe --long | sed 's/^foo-//;s/\([^-]*-g\)/r\1/;s/-/./g'


pepper_chico commented on 2020-10-12 18:20

Same issue here:

ctags on HEAD (01b9fc8)
❯ git describe --long --tags | sed 's/^p//;s/\([^-]*-g\)/r\1/;s/-/./g'

It seems this git describe/sed command is giving one character longer in the package maintainer's machine. Notice that this sed regex isn't listed in the recommended pkgver guidelines:

kseistrup commented on 2020-10-12 09:49

That's interesting, because if I do the “git describe” dance I get



$ ls -l *.zst
.rw-r--r-- 589.583 kas 12 Oct 11:44 universal-ctags-git-5.9.20201011.0.r12.g01b9fc86-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.zst

which is also the package name I end up with if I install it with yay.

I wonder what is happening here. Any ideas?
