dbacl has been unneeded since 1.1.0.

This is something you might ask with upstream, I'm just the packager. Having said that, you can apply whatever arbitrary tags you want on emails and they get synced back to gmail, depending on what software you're using.

Can this software have equivalent functionality to gmailieer? Can it have a workaround to get muted messages ( 2015 bug, they aren't going to fix it because this gives advantage to their webmail and native apps platforms).

Can you add "--tags" to the call to "git describe"? Upstream (sometimes?) uses unannotated tags for releases.

I have been using afew with python 3 for years now. Were exactly is afew's official position on this?

mkaito commented on 2017-08-07 12:13

When you update, you might want to switch to python2. Afew's official position right now is that py3 doesn't work well enough to call it supported. We're working on it, but you should stick to py2 for now.

Just a reminder: `pkgver` still doesn't work. Refer to @cagprado's comment. I'm going to flag this out of date, just to poke @mlq.

cagprado commented on 2017-02-17 08:27

makepkg refuses to build due to most recent tags in git rep containing forbidden characters for pkgver. Using the first suggested approach at seems to work.

Thanks but can you also bump the $pkgrel, please. Otherwise users (or aur helpers like yaourt) might not notice the change.

Please add the man page to the package. It can be build with

make -C docs man

and installed with

install -D -m 644 docs/build/man/afew.1 "$pkgdir/usr/share/man/man1"

or with

mkdir -p "$pkgdir/usr/share/man/man1"
gzip < docs/build/man/afew.1 > "$pkgdir/usr/share/man/man1/afew.1.gz"

The package needs to makedepend on python-shpinx in order to build the man page.
