I faced the following problem with the current version 2.5.10-1 when I try to fetch:

Unable to fetch from 'origin' - Failed to authenticate SSH session: Unable to send userauth-publickey request

Adding git to the dependencies is usually not done, since you have to retrieve the PKGBUILD and the other build files through git anyways, i.e. it's already required to get the dependency lists in the first place. I can add it as a dependency, but the cleaner solution (which I'd honestly prefer) would be to preinstall git (or rather, the full base-devel group) in your environment, since pretty much every other package requires that as well.

Could you please add "git" as makedependency? Otherwise gitahead won't build in a clean build environment.

@fenuks The LICENSE file in this repository is not for gitahead, but rather for the PKGBUILD itself. Don't ask me why.

@timschumi Correct me if I'm wrong, but LICENSE file included in this package repository is not used (and in fact, incorrect, since gitahead is MIT-licensed, whereas bundled license file is for GPL), therefore could be removed?

@shady.squirrel While it's nice to hear that the issue is resolved, the circumstances are still a bit weird. This package is always building from the same tag (unless the version is bumped), so it should still be the same package no matter when you built it (or at least it shouldn't contain any upstream fixes). Anyways, I'll upload the remaining patch and hopefully everything is resolved.

@timschumi it was an error or their side, I've rebuilt it again later yesterday (haven't seen your comment yet) and it worked okay (minus that 'Plugin documentation' error).

I've rebuilt with that new patch a hour ago, it looks fine so far, even Plugin documentation :)

@shady.squirrel I made some more changes to the PKGBUILD, do you mind trying a build that has this patch applied?

Main suspect seems to be the binary that was moved to /usr/bin/gitahead, which seems to make it upset (for example, the "Help > Plugin Documentation" menu doesn't work properly).

shady.squirrel commented on 2019-04-06 14:26

@timschumi no, just regular build, either from yay or manually via makepkg, same issue. Binary version works fine, so I'm starting to think it's an issue with their repo.

@shady.squirrel No such issues here. Are you doing anything special to trigger this?
