I updated the pkgver to match the packaging guidelines more closely (not to update the version number). However, as I understand the purpose of VCS packages the pkgver is updated on your local build. I can hardly push a new package each time a commit is added to netgen (each commit would change the pkgver). If you are looking for a netgen package with release versioning, one would have to create a netgen package which tracks the release (as opposed to this netgen-git package, which tracks the current development version). Please enlighten me if I am wrong ...

@ftschindler do you mind updating the name of this package ? 6.2.2008 is the latest release

I updated the pkgver, but from what I understand this is updated on each local build (since this is a -git package) so no need to do this on my end...

Looks like the netgen folks changed their version scheme: https://github.com/NGSolve/netgen/releases

Thx for reporting. I update the URL to the github one.

I had to edit the PKGBUILD because the source download always timed out. In my case the problem was solved by changing the SourceForge git URL (http://git.code.sf.net/p/netgen-mesher/git) to the Github URL of the netgen project (https://github.com/NGSolve/ngsolve.git)

So instead of: source=("${pkgname%-git}::git+http://git.code.sf.net/p/netgen-mesher/git#branch=master") the source line reads now: source=("${pkgname%-git}::git+https://github.com/NGSolve/ngsolve")
