Actually... a new package has been released with version 1.7
Can this AUR package be updated to reflect the package update?

Thanks!

A total of 6 patches for this version of the packet have been suggested here:
https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=834413

Iy would be important to include them in the current release, so that images with swap can be built.

https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?att=4;bug=834413;filename=0006-Filesystem-use-Partitions-to-set-up-kpartx.patch;msg=10

The last patch (0006-Filesystem-use-Partitions-to-set-up-kpartx.patch) needs to be modified as it it cannot be applied as it is. the two elif sections:

- elif self.settings['use-uefi']:
- bootindex = 0
- rootindex = 1
- parts = 2
- elif self.settings['use-uefi'] and self.settings['swap'] > 0:
- bootindex = 0
- rootindex = 1
- swapindex = 2
- parts = 3

need to be swapped:

- elif self.settings['use-uefi'] and self.settings['swap'] > 0:
- bootindex = 0
- rootindex = 1
- swapindex = 2
- parts = 3
- elif self.settings['use-uefi']:
- bootindex = 0
- rootindex = 1
- parts = 2
