Please update the PKGBUILD to use git+https:// instead of git://.

Otherwise, the build fails with the following error:

fatal: remote error: 
  The unauthenticated git protocol on port 9418 is no longer supported.
Please see for more information.

Thanks, trizen. I've updated the PKGBUILD.

Please add: provides=('zstd' '')

Otherwise the package cannot be installed due to this error:

:: zstd-git and zstd are in conflict. Remove zstd? [y/N] y
error: failed to prepare transaction (could not satisfy dependencies)
:: removing zstd breaks dependency '' required by ccache
:: removing zstd breaks dependency '' required by curl
:: removing zstd breaks dependency '' required by tor

this package compile fine on aarch64, can you add it in the arch section of the PKGBUILD?

NOTE: This package now tracks the dev branch of upstream by default, instead of master. Upstream only uses master for full releases, so tracking dev makes this package more interesting.

Thanks for the heads-up, I updated the main package `zstd` but forgot about `zstd-git`. It should be working now.

Repository is moved to Additionally, I can't build it with the current PKGBUILD: install: cannot stat 'lib/LICENSE': No such file or directory LICENSE is in the main directory now.

This package apparently includes files in `/usr/local/share/man`. `/usr/local/share/man` is a symlink (belonging the the package `filesystem`) to `/usr/local/man`. Apparently pacman does not like this, and refuses to install the file (and therefore the package). I guess this package does not use PREFIX=/usr to not conflict with the other `zstd` package, so... what should be done here? EDIT: scratch that, it does conflict with zstd, so it really should use PREFIX=/usr. EDIT2: Now fixed. Thanks!
