@jshap70 I’m really not a fan of separate documentation packages – I find them very annoying in Debian, and I have the impression they’re much less widespread in Arch.

Making it optional in the build sounds more acceptable to me – declare pandoc as an optional dependency and change the build script so it doesn’t fail if the manpage can’t be built. Still not convinced it’s necessary, though, to be honest.

can we talk about maybe removing that manpage? or making it optional in the build? In all, pandoc and it's haskell-deps is 417.21 MiB of extra requirements, which pretty annoying for something which by definition is just "a fancy wrapper around... pacstrap".

Maybe we can split it out into a mkosi-docs-git package?

@S13ntist great, thanks a lot for the patch! I’ve taken the liberty to split it into several commits (keeping you as the author), I hope you don’t mind.

Hi, since mkosi now includes a man page. The bad news is that you need to generate it yourself, via pandoc.

Can you please include the patch here:

@gdamjan I guess that’s outdated – as far as I can tell, it seems that qemu-kvm was a fork of QEMU with KVM features added, but that’s now been merged back into QEMU, so it shouldn’t be necessary anymore. I’ve dropped the optdepends, thanks!

gdamjan commented on 2018-11-03 18:41

is the qemu-kvm optdepend needed? It doesn't seem to exist as a package, and those providing it already provide qemu too

@gdiscry thanks, that first link clears it up I think :)

@lucaswerkmeister thanks.

FYI mentions "Include the appropriate VCS tool in makedepends=() (cvs, subversion, git, ...)." and it's also in the prototype PKGBUILD

As per, only the packages in base-devel and their dependencies are implicit dependencies.

I don't remember if it fails when fetching the sources or because of pkgver, but it fails with aurutils and it's mostly a wrapper around makechrootpkg.

Anyways, dependency added.

lucaswerkmeister commented on 2018-02-13 15:19

@gdiscry: hm, shouldn’t it be an implicit dependency because you need git to fetch the sources? Or is that step still done outside the chroot, but we need git for pkgver as well, and that’s the problem?
