So, FYI:

vcsh development is on hiatus. This package points to the debian branch, which is stale. My hope was to upgrade to master, which has commits up to half way between now and the last change to the debian branch. Problem is that there are build breaking test fails on master, see issue:

There is an apparently active fork, but I'm holding off switching the package to that until the situation becomes clearer.

The other potential option is to edit out the tests from the build in the prepare().

@xaocon if you don't want to maintain this, please orphan it. I'd be happy to keep it up to date. At the moment it's a *-git package that's building from a release-only branch. It should be building from the branch where development is actually happening. The resulting install is several years out of date.

Some unit tests added new dependencies. If you compile this on a fresh system, you also need perl-shell-command (AUR) and perl-test-most (AUR). Please add those dependencies.

I've taken over the package. I've added ronn back because the static branch doesn't seem to always match master and I preferred building for yourself for the -git package. I'll track how future commits are handled.

Upstream is building manpages in the manpage-static branch. Pulling source from that branch, ruby-ronn is no longer a build requirement. I don't use vcsh any more, so I'm disowning. Feel free to take over.

I resolved it by un- and then reinstalling ruby-ronn from aur.

Someone is having the same issue with the non-devel vcsh package. I wasn't able to replicate, but I'll try some more.

vcsh.1 is generated in the Makefile from vcsh.1.ronn with ronn from ruby-ronn. If vcsh.1 isn't found by install, then its generation may have been prevented by a problem with ronn or the Makefile.

with newest version I get: "install: cannot stat ‘vcsh.1’: No such file or directory"

Yeah I saw it was building from HEAD. I just know that people use automated tools that don't rebuild until there is a version bump. Of course, how you want to handle versions is up to you. Glad I could help.
