I just adopted this thing and migrated it to meson. It passes namcap and it runs OK, so it's probably fine.

Oh, wait, I see klusark is no longer the maintainer...

Hey, klusark, in case you aren't subscribed to the mailing list, I thought you should know weston is switching to meson.

You should be able to build it with meson now. I would change it myself, but you know more about this PKGBUILD than I do, so I figured it would be more economical for you to do the switch. Pretty please?

There's a grace period, so the PKGBUILD isn't really out of date. Not yet, anyway.

Hi, wayland-protocols is a makedepends, and Weston doesn’t depend on the -git version of it, everything is already in a release.

shoober420, feel free to copy this package, add the patches, and upload it under a new name (such as weston-git-nvidia). I'm going to keep this package as it is upstream.

Scimmia commented on 2016-03-23 15:03 (UTC)

Once they're accepted upstream, they'll be available here automatically. I don't think it's wise to include patches before they're accepted.

shoober420 commented on 2016-03-23 14:38 (UTC)

Would it be possible to add the NVIDIA patches that are posted on the Weston mailing list to this package so we can launch Weston natively with NVIDIA proprietary drivers?

@linkmauve, done.
