Package has been synced with extra. Tested in clean chroot.

Fails to build with extra-x64_64-build:

==> Entering fakeroot environment...
==> Starting package_vte-git()...
mv: cannot stat 'gtk4/*': No such file or directory
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in package_vte-git().
    Aborting...

What is this line supposed to do?

The @smnpk user writes as reason for its (incorrect) deletion request:

"Duplicates vte3-git and vte4-git packages already found in the AUR."

This package correctly split git versions of vte3, vte4 and vte-common under a single pkgbase (i.e. a single build); the packages he mentions has a different structure, indeed a questionable one (currently it still requires users to install gtk3 to obtain a working vte4 and it also requires two separate builds).

I maintain most of the -git GNOME stack, I am a GNOME app developer, I follow changes upstream closely.

I have been writing all week the either inexpert or trolling vte3-git and vte4-git "contributor" his packages have issues.

I'd like to underline I normally never take such a stance as defining someone "inexpert" or "trolling", but really this person is trying to escalate this issue without any clear reason.

He denied proposed fixes' usefulness each and every time, still always applying them and then saying they were not needed. Probably tomorrow his package will be identical to this and he will open a duplicate request, say I even bothered him.

Up to now he has kept his very questionable technical decision to keep two pkgbases.

You should read all the comments, all the code and compare dates to find that this person is actively trying to make me look like the bad guy when instead he is the one who has been aggressive, non-cooperating and hostile the whole time.

What is happening is really shameful. I feel this person should be punished somehow; still he is free to probably use alternative accounts just to keep trolling here.

It's a week I am being attacked personally for having gently suggested someone how to fix a package up to the point of making for him an entirely new package so it would have been easier to apply the changes and merge the packages.

I literally showed this rude brute who went mad a month ago because he couldn't build a package in his local tree and so decided it was okay to defame me without even trying to reach me beyond the "flag out-of-date" button how to properly contribute and be polite when a maintainer is missing or is non-cooperating and this is the result, that I have to defend myself publicly on aur-general. What a clown world.

I am sorry but I can only define as toxic someone you are trying to help and shorten his work and instead keeps "punching" you and defaming you.

Please everyone be aware of these dangerous toxic trolls.

Since @xiota still doesn't want to fix his packages, I made

  • vte-git the git version of upstream (extra repo) vte4;

  • vtethree-git the git version of upstream vte3;

  • vte-common-git the git version of upstream vte-common.

@xiota: you need to update your packages or merge with this one, it's known that it's not currently compatible with yours, which are outdated (unsplit).

About contacting maintainers privately in advance to update the package, while I can agree it's certainly more fun when it happens, it's totally absurd and insane to think to do so every single time.

In general, if doesn't take you 3 minutes to split or combine a package and you need emails to discuss something such as this, then maybe you should change approach.
