Please do not flag package out of date, unless it doesn't build. It's a Git package, the version is computed during the installation.

I believe AUR package managers already do that.

No, they don't usually.

@SpotlightKid I added provides directive. As to the unclean build root issue, I don't think that is something package needs to address. People should ensure clean build, and I believe AUR package managers already do that.

The PKGBUILD is still missing provides=(${_appname}).

Also, when not building in a clean chroot, CMake will built this app against Qt5 and then the dependencies will be broken.

Here's an improved PKGBUILD:

@wpd I've never seen that issue. Do you happen to have default Git branch name set globally?

I added #branch=main just in case.

I got a "fatal: Not a valid object name HEAD" ==> ERROR: pkgver is not allowed to be empty. ==> ERROR: pkgver() generated an invalid version:

To fix it, add a #branch=main to the git source

I think some build dependencies are missing. I get the following error when trying to build the package:

The PKGBUILD is missing provides=(${_appname}). Without it, it won't satisfy the dependencies of packages depending on zeal.

Something has changed with the upstream repo maybe? Fails to build:

Cloning into 'zeal'... done. warning: remote HEAD refers to nonexistent ref, unable to checkout ==> Starting pkgver()... fatal: Not a valid object name HEAD ==> ERROR: pkgver is not allowed to be empty. ==> ERROR: pkgver() generated an invalid version: error: failed to build 'zeal-git-0.6.1.r271.g6c2160f-1': error: packages failed to build: zeal-git-0.6.1.r271.g6c2160f-1

Build fails due to opencl dependencies for me: I have ocl-icd, opencl-headers, and opencl-mesa installed.

Thanks, this package works fine. The last stable version package zeal 0.6.1-3 still has qt5-webkit (AUR) as a dependency which takes hours to build. (This zeal-git package uses qt5-webengine instead).
