If you try to update from before the move to gitlab, it will show:

==> ERROR: /var/yay_cache/libxfce4ui-git/libxfce4ui is not a clone of                                                                                        

Removing that directory (i.e. forcing re-download) is enough to fix the problem. rm -r /var/yay_cache/libxfce4ui-git Alternatively I suppose you could simply change the remote cd /var/yay_cache/libxfce4ui-git/libxfce4ui; git remote set-url origin to avoid re-downloading everything.

On an unrelated note, --enable-maintainer-mode does seem to be necessary to compile successfully.

thanks for the hint with --enable-maintainer-mode. W/o that building failed:

--enable-maintainer-mode needs to be added

'libxfce4util>=4.13.1 just put it libxfce4util-git

Git requires file "libxfce4util-1.0.gir"

In turn this means that the minimum required libxfce4util version is now 4.13.1

pkgver is giving me "1:xfce+4.14..." instead of "1:4.14...", so my AUR helper thinks it needs to be updated every time. could you change the sed call to strip all leading non-digits?

  git describe --long --tags | sed -r "s:^${_pkgname}.::;s/^[^[:digit:]]*//;s/-/+/g"

So, I talked with the guys in #xfce-dev and got a fix:
split up the ./ command with many arguments in

./configure \
--enable-maintainer-mode \

According to ninetls from #xfce-dev the culprit is xdg-autogen in combination with

would you mind to change the vendor info from »Arch Linux« to »archlinux« (also stated in /etc/os-release). Else it doesn't build.
