Updated/fixed again.

Here's a 2nd update: http://www37.zippyshare.com/v/9356926/file.html
- added the 'autoconfig-nvidia.patch' for using nouveau/nvidia/nv drivers as default with nvidia
- renamed the folder from 'xorg-server' to 'xorg-server-git'
- added curly brackets to '$_gitname' and '$_gitroot' for consistency ('${_gitname}', '${_gitroot}')

Out of date.

Thanks, fixed, but the file was clearly downloadable on the "Sources" section there (for whatever reason) so you could've just done that yourself too.

xorg-redhat-die-ugly-pattern-die-die-die.patch is missing in the package. Please use makepkg --source to generate the tarball you upload.

Ok, thanks for your efforts with both. I updated glib2-newest and fixed this one.

E: Same happened again, Glib2 2.25.15 was released a coupple of days ago.. though it's gonna hit [extra] soon, which might make glib2-newest unnecessary. Anyway, you just need to change the pkgver from x.14 to x.15 - I'm just saying you don't need me to do that.

Dunno how can you not be able to extract my tarball.. probably a really weird archiving tool you got there - how about just 'tar xvfz xorg-server-git.tar.gz'?

About gitorious/github, I'm not exactly sure what you mean by that. That we'd do changes _there_ and the other one, whoever is the maintainer, would just update the package(s) in the end? Wouldn't that be rather unnecessary thing to do, when 1) the changes would first be posted to gitorious and _then_ here - is the log keeping so important? 2) If the xorg-server git tree changed and the package would need to be updated in order to compile and the maintainer one wouldn't be able to update the package for whatever reason (and didn't know that was gonna happen and thus didn't disown the package) then what(?) - the other person would either need to wait for the maintaining person to update the package or tell a TU in the forums/IRC/mailing list to disown the package so that he could update it himself.

I wouldn't really like to be doing that :S.
