That seems to have changed in upstream commit a31f4571. Thanks for letting me know!

On line 53, I think it should be "examples/", not "sampleconfigs/"

Having "sampleconfigs/" fails with a No such file or directory error.

Cheers! Always happy to help!

@Nidhogg: Thanks, sorry about that. Updated with fix.

@mvdan: The Arch guidelines say GPL3 for GPL3 or later. I removed the sample config from sources and made the package install the sample config.

To both, thanks for your help!

mkdir -p "$pkgdir/usr/share/bash-completion/completions"

has to be added before line 49

install completion/bash-completion "$pkgdir/usr/share/bash-completion/completions/fdroidserver"

Else, the build fails with a "No such file or directory" error.

Thanks for updating the PKGBUILD!

You're right, python2-magic should be an optdepend (it is only used when doing source builds). OTOH python2-pillow is used to resize images when doing icons for a repo, so it's also needed for binary repos. Still, one could use the server tools to build apks for personal use, without actually using a repo. So that goes in optdepends too.

The license is GPL v3 or later, mentioning it in case the "or later" part should be specified.

One last simplification - now much of the is automated, like the SDK and NDK locations from the ANDROID_* environment variables. So the strictly needed part of would be just one line:

build_tools = '19.0.1'

But I think the best case would be to bundle the whole example config - see sampleconfigs/ - it already includes the correct version of the sdk build tools, so it's only a matter of copying it.

Thanks for the tips, I incorporated them.

About putting stuff to optdepends: I only use this for hosting a simple binary repo, so I would appreciate a more specific list of things that should be in optdepends. Makedepends are not install depends but if you build the package on the same host as you install you will end up having them installed.

* .py files now use python2, the sed line can be removed
* There's a new script that should be installed, 'fd-commit'
* Could we install the bash completion script?
* git and some of the python-* makedeps should be optdepends too, or are makedepends install depends too?
