Oh that sounds great!

Notice, that when you install package trough package manager, like "bauerbill -S love-hg", it gets installed from this package page, but later when you check what version is installed using for example "pacman -Qs love-hg", you will see "local/love-hg 431-1". Also, if you update packages using "bauerbill -Syu" it does not get updated, unless you specify "--devel" flag, when latest version of love-hg is pulled. On the other hand if I want to force update on all users that installed it because of bug for example or some other change, I can bump version here, which forces update without "--devel" if someone installed lower version than above. It makes sense really, when you get used to it - for sure it's far easier and works better than making .deb-s :P

That is... a weird system, but sure if it follow the rules.

Hi Bart! This package is built along with Arch guidelines for hg packages ( https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/VCS_PKGBUILD_Guidelines ), which means always take latest :) The version isn't really important, it's just information when the package was made. As far as I know all *-hg, *-git, *-svn etc packages work like that.

I see you're always using the latest revision of the repo, regardless of the version of the package, you should do hg update <revision-number> to go to the revision belonging to this version, otherwise, keep it up!

One more update, added some build process description - also, fixed version information to be "$hash-$date" like in original beta distribution, instead of string "HEAD" - code to generate version information taken from ./platform/autobuild, but only parts of it (autobuild script is made to create tarballs and deb packages only).

Small update, cleaned up dependencies to make sure all but only really required packages are added.

Patch is no longer needed with revision 371, it was quick fix. If there are some issues with LuaJIT version please let me (and upstream, or I can pass it) know. Have fun :)

There was small typo in configure.in, before it is fixed I attached patch. Also, lua isn't needed anymore so I removed it from dependencies - it can work with only LuaJIT2 installed. I will remove the patch as soon as upstream fixes it in repo.

If anyone wants love-hg package to use Lua again, I can create love-luajit-hg package and revert those changes, but I think it's ok to use latest/best of what is available :)
