current patched PKGBIULD

Broken: uses https(git+https://) exclusively now.

Source structure has also changed, they use meson build-system now (meson needs to be added to makedepends, and build commands need to be converted from makefile system to meson)

It doesn't build. Here is the log:

I have changed the PKGBUILD somewhat as the package no longer built. This is my first time doing this so hope it's somewhat alright.

This is not a git package despite its name

Sorry to bother, but in the last update the package version number becomes crippled after makepkg:

# pacman -Qi ephoto-git
Name : ephoto-git
Version : 1.0..-1
Description : A light image viewer based on EFL
Architecture : x86_64
Licenses : BSD
Groups : None
Provides : ephoto=1.0..

Anyway, shouldn't the package be called ephoto, without -git, since it downloads the source from the stable package and not from git?

FYI, Ephoto 1.0 final is out:
I don't know if it requires efl 1.19. In that case, the package in Arch repos, or the one in aur should be updated too.

Edit: The links on that post are wrong. They point to the old beta 3. However the final was uploaded and you can find it here:
