I've been maintaining this package under it's original name for some time. The upstream project rename was just announced 13 hours ago, so I'm a little disappointed to find that I can't push a package rename through because this took the name. Is there any chance I could convince you to orphan or delete it so there can be some continuity with the versioning for upgraders? I have a version of the repo to push with the rename and obsoletes and such taken into account (as well as a version scheme that won't conflict as much with the tagged versions).

You filed an orphan request for something that changed in the upstream project just a couple days ago (hours in the case of the rename)? That's a little hasty don't you think? The AUR rules say not to file one until having pinged the maintainer and it has been flagged out of date for a long time. Just for future reference...

I'll be filing to get this renamed as well as submitting updates to the latest upstream changes soon. If you'd like to add me as a co-maintainer to the versioned release package I'd be glad to help catch updates as they happen or when you're indisposed. I do follow the upstream pretty closely and have other ties with the developer, I just happened to be on the road this week until last night.

Hi caleb,
great to hear from you! I already created a otf-libertinus package for the tagged releases yesterday (and I have just it updated to v6.1). I can add your name to the maintainers there, if you want to have push access.
It would be great if you could update the git package as well, then I can revoke my orphan request here.
Best, jmx.

The upstream project has changed names anyway, I will setup packages for both the git and tagged release versions.

could you perhaps reupload your PKGBUILD, as since yesterday there is a git tag in the repo which (for the fist time) makes your pkgver function work as intended. However, the new version 6.0 is smaller than 20150701, so all AUR helpers will constantly inform you that your installed, newer package is outdated. Thank you!

Since there are no git tags upstream (yet), `git describe --long --tags` in `pkgver()` does not give a meaningful result.

The Wiki ( suggests to "use number of revisions since beginning of the history" via

printf "r%s.%s" "$(git rev-list --count HEAD)" "$(git rev-parse --short HEAD)"

instead. Would you mind changing this?

Thanks, jmx.
