Looks good; made that change!

I got stuck trying to install beets-alternatives (from AUR) because this package doesn't declare its beets version appropriately.

Applying this change fixes the dependency problem for other beets packages:

This keeps trying to build python2-mutagen and failing because of old GPG keys. Though I'm pretty sure the current version of beets uses python3 so python-mutagen in the community repo should work?

The completion file for ZSH isn't installed: beets/extra/_beet

beets-python3-git has been merged back into beets-git: - this package will get deleted soon, so if you're using this, you should switch back. :)

Should depends on python-mutagen instead of mutagen. See

Suggest adding python2-pip to dependencies to put some oil for non-Python guys, yeah like me. That since
1) pip2's needed to install most Beet plugins and
2) Doc often simply mentions `pip install <plugin-dependency>` which won't work on Arch where pip is python3* by default.

Thanks, Freso—pkgver updated.

Freso commented on 2014-12-20 10:01

Uh. `git describe --long | sed -r 's/^v//;s/([^-]*-g)/r\1/;s/-/./g'` I mean.

Freso commented on 2014-12-20 09:56

`printf "%s" "command"` is the same as just using `command` straight up, so "git describe --tags --long | sed 's/^[v]//;s/-/-r/' | tr - ." would work fine - although I would probably rather go with something similar to what is listed on the wiki ( git describe --long | sed -r 's/^v-//;s/([^-]*-g)/r\1/;s/-/./g'

Also, please upload a PKGBUILD which actually has the $pkgver in the "new" format. Otherwise tools such as yaourt will always think that there's a newer version available since 20130930.787918f-1 > 1.3.9.r93.g01bb6fa-1.
