Please make pkgver() saner (and revert source to github but i'm not sure about that)

I just released kmscon-7. Release-notes can be found here:

@BiggArs you have to use '=' for assignments in config files. So use:

I am working on a proper config-file parser. The current one was just a simple workaround.

@dvdhrm i have a problem with default config. Font options (such 'font-size', 'font-engine') don't recognize. My config /etc/kmscon/kmscon.conf:

font-size 12
font-engine freetype2

Trying to start and i get:

фев 09 22:03:06 archbook kmscon[6521]: [0000.002462] ERROR: config: unknown config option 'font-size 12'
фев 09 22:03:06 archbook kmscon[6521]: [0000.002538] ERROR: cannot load configuration: -14

Without parameters for font options, such this config:


i get:

фев 09 22:19:04 archbook kmscon[6728]: [0000.000275] ERROR: config: config option 'font-size' requires an argument
фев 09 22:19:04 archbook kmscon[6728]: [0000.000324] ERROR: cannot load configuration: -14

May be i doing soething wrong?

I talked with Ran-Benita (xkbcommon dev) and he also suggested to move the xkeyboard-config dependency to libxkbcommon. The thing is, xkeyboard-config installs the keyboard-configuration files but libxkbcommon takes the path to the directory as ./configure option. So libxkbcommon depends on xkeyboard-config, not the other way around.
Can you fix this for libxkbcommon and kmscon? Or what do you think on that?

@swiftgeek: It shouldn't use a shallow clone - this only clones the repository once, and then pulls changes the next time you build it. The prototype git PKGBUILD in /usr/share/pacman does it this way.

Luckily pacman 4.1 will bring VCS support in makepkg, so it won't be something to worry about per-package.

Please use shallow clone
git clone --depth=1 $_gitroot $_gitname
