Bitbucket no longer hosts mercurial repositories, could you update this package?

Please replace qt4 by qt5.

To build qith qt5 :

hg clone

cd xxdiff/src

export QT_SELECT=qt5

make -f Makefile.bootstrap

edit Makefile adding -std=c++11 to the CXXFLAGS


xxdiff is now in ../bin

It seems I have to download it manually every time (not just once which was how I interpreted the comment in the PKGBUILD) and use `makepkg -e`. Also, I was building mainly just to check if it currently does work with python-docutils rather than python2-docutils, but it seems that neither is needed.

Does anybody else get this problem? -> Cloning xxdiff hg repo... abort: error: [SSL: CERTIFICATE_VERIFY_FAILED] certificate verify failed (_ssl.c:581)

Compilation with 'bison' fails. I sucessfully used 'bison27' instead. So I changed the makedepends line to: makedepends=('flex>=2.5.31' 'bison27' 'mercurial' 'python-docutils')

xxdiff-hg is failing to build because /usr/bin/qmake4 no longer exists. Change QMAKE in PKGBUILD as follows to fix it: export QMAKE=/usr/bin/qmake-qt4
