I am getting the following error:

Switched to a new branch 'makepkg'

-> Creating working copy of yosys-abc git repo... Cloning into 'yosys-abc'... done.

fatal: invalid reference: 3fa90540 ==> ERROR: Failure while creating working copy of yosys-abc git repo Aborting... -> error making: yosys-nightly

@Xyne: It is? I don't see anything like that mentioned in the docs (I don't see any mention at all, to be honest). Looking at other -nightly packages suggests that they should have pkgver() functions like VCS packages.

Using a fixed commit is a valid method for posting nightly builds. There's no difference between that and using a dedicated nightly archive if that is upstream's intention.

I deleted symbiyosys-nightly without fully scrutinizing the PKGBUILD to check for the fixed commits in the source url. "#commit=..." should be inside the quotation marks so that it does not appear as a comment.

Please fix the URLs and address other issues with this PKGBUILD such as the useless "cd" commands. Use yosys-git as a template for your corrections. Then please do the same for symiyosys-nightly and re-upload it.

I apologize for the erroneous deletion.

If there are nightlies use them as source.

Upload of pkgbuilds don't need permission from developers or third-party, following packaging guidelines is enough, automatic bump of pkgbuilds is not welcome, with your reasoning every -git,-svn,-hg pkgbuild could have a -nightly one. I'm not the one who made the deletion request.

FabioLolix, seeing as I work for YosysHQ, and this package has been given the green-light by them, I don't see why this and the symbiyosys-nightly packages need to be removed.

In the first place they are fundamentally different in the fact that the nightly packages are pinned to the latest commit at UTC 0 every day when the version is rolled, where as the -git package which needs to be re-installed to update it unless the version of the package is explicitly rolled.

In addition to this, yosys /does/ have nightlies, we have a CI job that bumps the version number between releases.

All in all, as an employee of YosysHQ, I don't see the need to remove this nor the symbiyosys-nightly packages unless a better argument than 'it is a dupe of the -git package' can be presented.

Hello, while there are several things that need to be corrected in the pkgbuild, it should not have been uploaded in first place (there aren't nightly releases, yosys-git exist) so please ask for deletion and update your other pkgbuilds accordingly, the same is valid for symbiyosys-nightly
