There's a bunch of flags which don't make sense with -S or -Q. In these cases, you can't trust the value they return. I suppose I could parse the format string and whitelist. Either way, you're right that I should document %w as being -Q only in the manpage.

Shouldn't 'install reason' be only available with -Q? With '-S' I'm getting 'explicit' for every package.

OK, thanks.

if [[ -d $_gitname ]] ; then
cd $_gitname && git pull origin pacman4

git clone -b pacman4 $_gitroot $_gitname

This way expac seems to be working with pacman4, but I'm curious if that's how you do it git-wise and PKGBUILD-wise.

How to make it work with pacman4? Does this make any sense:

No. We're not. Fix your paths so that Perl doesn't get clobbered out of it.

makedepends=('git' 'perl')

$ pacman -Qo pod2man
/usr/bin/core_perl/pod2man is owned by perl 5.14.1-3

Ape commented on 2011-07-05 13:02

/bin/sh: pod2man: command not found

Are we missing a build dependency?

SanskritFritz commented on 2011-03-24 13:29

I'm sorry for even remotely suggesting the opposite :)

falconindy commented on 2011-03-24 13:15

Of course it is!
