Because the sources are not static, skip the checksum in md5sums=() by adding 'SKIP'.

@damian101 stop making git-packages OOD. This package updates to the latest commit of source code repository. That basically means what package always be updated.

@pappl It's described in official VCS Package Guidelines: Because the sources are not static, skip the checksum in md5sums=() by adding 'SKIP'.

Since darkfm dropped package, I'll continue to look after it. @LinBuoRen, the OOD flag for -git package not making any sense since it updates version from master branch of repo. But I'll do the version "change" just for you.

I would like to inform you that we are planning to refactor the entire project and will, starting from 2019/1/1(UTC+8), cloning/transferring the repository to the newly created organization. The planning and discussions are held on Issue #209[1].

the .SRCINFO is invalid, it was apparently generated by "makepkg --printsrcinfo >> .SRCINFO".

The version string doesn't conform to the VCS packaging guidelines as described in ArchWiki, namely in including the release version string if it's defined:

Specifically for packages with public releases or repository tags like this one, $pkgver must include the latest tag, the number of commits since the tagged release, and the abbreviated commit name. For the WoeUSB repository right now, the derived $pkgver value should be:


A pkgver() function definition that generates this version string can be found on the "VCS packaging guidelines" page in ArchWiki, as the last example in the article's Git section. Modify that example's sed command by adding an additional script (i.e. 's/^v//') to remove the leading "v" found in the upstream repo's tags.

Here's a diff of the PKGBUILD implementing the correction:
