The current Package Version is currently only the abbreviated commit name and therefore does not increase with each update. I would suggest something like the following to get a higher Version for each new commit:

pkgver() {
cd ${srcdir}/${pkgname}
echo "r$(git rev-list --count HEAD).$(git describe --always)"

The Version would look like "r94-72aa1d9" which contains the current number of commits and the latest abbreviated commit name.

I try to write Windows 10 LTSB x64 v1607 RU.

Same also for winusb 1.0

What is this?

I highly reccomend to change the version number and the pkgver() function...
I believe that any new commit starting with 'd' would not be consider as a new version...

localuser is right, dosfstools is missing from dependencies

dpeukert commented on 2016-10-01 20:06

There's a typo in the provides (winsub, should be winusb).

agm28011997 commented on 2016-09-07 20:03

is it compatible with windows 10 64 bits iso for putting in the pen? Thanks

localuser commented on 2016-08-17 10:07

Needs to add dosfstools as dependency.
