Could we add the modprobe config to the backup array to keep changed webcam resolutions? Thank you :)

Error in the PKGBUILD; 'LICENCE' should be called 'LICENSE'.

Inside the pkgbuild, checksum must be changed to md5 and sha512

I think a 'droidcam-git' package makes the most sense, really.

This package can have an epoch, for sure. But I'm still not sure if that's the best approach. Another plan I had was to drop this and upload a new package with correct version. There are a few options, other than adding an epoch.

@grazzolini I understand the versioning issue, but there is no reason to keep duplicates in the AUR. If it does move to [community] both sets of non-VCS packages will be obsolete. In the mean time having an epoch in the AUR won't change the situation when/if migrating, and the current best packaging is actually the {{aur|droidcam}} package right now. Even if a migration does happen this VCS package can stay, but it should probably be renamed (dkms isn't a distinctive feature of this package, if anything it would only apply to the module subpackage) and an epoch should be added so it can be properly versioned.

grazzolini commented on 2020-07-07 02:33

As I've mentioned, upstream changed their versioning numbering, so, there's no clean way to move to the upstream git without adding an epoch to this package. The main reason I haven't done so is because I have been considering adding this package to the official repositories, without an epoch, but building from upstream git and right version.
