vim-qt-qt5-git builds fine.

Hi, this could replace 'qvim' since qvim has been merged into this.

Having issues with currently on

This no longer builds. The pkgver() fails.

git describe --tags | perl -ne 'print $2 if /^(package-)([0-9]{8})$/; exit 0 if $2; exit 1'
fatal: No names found, cannot describe anything.

.INSTALL is invoking gtk-update-icon-cache but the corresponding package isn't stated by variable depends.
This will probably come into effect on a minority of systems only as the package is installed more often than not but nevertheless fixing wouldn't hurt, IMHO.

On a side note I wonder whether it wouldn't make sense to rename this package to vim-qt to reflect the upstream identification.
I'm aware a package named like this was providing script in AUR <4. But the last commit was more than twelve years ago.
Aside from this I for one think it would be much better anyway if scripts got summarized similarly as its done with translations, e. g. vim-script-foo.

This is the latest stable version (see whilst vim-qt-git is the most recent commit. Incidentally these currently coincide, although this hasn't always been the case.

There already is - what's the difference? Maybe you can suggest adding e.g. lua support to vim-qt-git.
