Actually, it seems that upstream intentionally changed the install location to /usr/share, so that is where I will be leaving it.

All the best,

Ahh yes. That would be because upstream's Makefile does not specify the full install path. That is okay though because I just realized the version I have marked currently is quite wrong. So I will update the pkgver() function and the package() function tonight.

The install location just jumped from /usr/share/zsh/plugins to /usr/share.

Is that deliberate?

Thanks for the heads-up! It seems upstream has added a nice-and-simple `make install` rule to make our lives simpler. I have updated the package to utilize it so you should have everything upstream provides officially now.

All the best,

The .version and .revision-hash files are missing.

stef204, nice! I had no idea that had made it into [community]. The PKGBUILD has been updated. Thanks for the note.

It's funny. I've had that in my local copy for ages. Don't know how I forgot to upload the fix. The package has been updated. Thanks for the note.

All the best,

The path to the plugin file in zsh-syntax-highlighting.install is wrong:
/usr/share/zsh/plugins/zsh-syntax-highlight/zsh-syntax-highlighting.zsh should be replaced by
