ERROR: Unknown options: "os_vendor"

Hello! cvt support appears to have moved to a separate libxcvt library.
build() currently fails if the package is missing and package_xorg-server-git() fails if it's installed (it tries to copy the now missing cvt binary and manpage).
Could you please update the deps and _install?

Thank you for this package!

This needs xorgproto-git to compile

Quickly 'resolved' the previous issue by commenting out the last line in PKGBUILD

find fakeinstall -depth -print0 | xargs -0 rmdir

Although there might be a better solution.

Even with the fixed mesonbuild, I still get a build error.

rmdir: failed to remove 'fakeinstall/usr/bin/X': Not a directory

@xenu -- it appears to be a bug in mesonbuild

I have been getting a build error the last couple of days probably due to upstream commits to Xorg.wrap on 2021-03-25:

fair enough, if xorg-xwayland exists no point maintaining it here.

Rucikir commented on 2020-12-11 23:54

Hi! the extra package extracted xwayland to a standalone package (so, from the split package xorg-server-xwayland to xorg-xwayland).
I plan to do that too for my HiDPI package since it only touches xwayland, and I’ll remove xorg-server-*-hidpi-git and switch to xorg-wayland-hidpi-git.
You may want to consider mimicking what was done in extra. If I’m first to write that package, I’ll send you the patches ;-)

Thanks for the patch @Rucikir
