Hi community,

for those like me who love to test new applications, there is a chance to try the new (and still unstable) FlightGear 2020.2.1.

It is available as appimage without waiting for someone to compile or write the specific pkgbuild.

You may find it here:

Bye and have a nice flight...

When building the package, I get this warning:

==> Checking for packaging issues...
==> WARNING: Package contains reference to $srcdir

If I disable lines 38 and 39 in "CMakeModules/Translations.cmake" file then all is Ok, flightgear 2020.1.3 can compile.

Lines to comment :

translation_dir_list(LANGUAGES ${TRANSLATIONS_SRC_DIR})

message(STATUS "Detected language files: ${LANGUAGES}")

@AWhetter I would be interested in being a co-maintainer. However, I would suggest that we move the development and issue reporting over to GitHub so that people can easily contribute in a better format than the AUR Web. Take a look at aurpublish. It is what I use to manage my own personal pkgbuilds and the rocm-arch pkgbuilds. We could create a github repo that contains the pkgbuilds for all flightgear and simgear related packages that you host. Another benefit of have a github repo for these pkgbuilds is that the community can fix the issues themselves and submit PRs that all you have to do is sync to the AUR via an aurpublish command. Do take a look at this suggestion.

Apologies for the slowness in updating. I'm actively looking for a co-maintainer for flightgear and flightgear-git so if you're interested then let me know.

@ kamelie1706 I already suggested that in the past, but seems nobody wants to be a mantainer of flightgear for community repository... I would do it if I could but my system is too old and slow to compile...

Flightgear has to be on community!
