This package doesn't require git as a makedependency (anymore). Please remove it!

Hey @dreieck,
thanks for your comment and the suggestions.
Since there is no option to rename a package and xkbset-git exists now, xkbset could be deleted, yes.
You can transfer me the ownership of the package xkbset-git if you want.
Thank you.

thanks for fixing up the package.

However, now there are other issues:

You download as source the latest state from their git repository.

If you do so, you need to name your package xkbset-git (i.e. with the -git suffix) according to the → packaging guidelines and provide appropriate provides and conflicts entries.

Also, in this case, $pkgver must be strongly monotoneusly increasing with each upstream commit, for that a properly crafted → pkgver() function is needed.

There is already a → package xkbset-git, so if you are interested to maintain it you can drop a comment there and I can transfer maintainership to you.

Alternatively, please download a specific commit/ a specific (stable) → release, e.g. currently → version 0.8.

Thanks for maintaining!

For your information:
I made a -git package of xkbset which is based on the latest source: xkbset-git.

You state $pkgver as 0.6, but download version 0.5.

Also, $url is not available anymore and the upstream source neither.

It moved to

Please update! Version 0.8 is already out:
