No, it's a false negative. mkaurball depends on makepkg, and therefore pacman.

Raimar commented on 2015-06-02 20:58

pacman should be removed from dependencies to avoid namcap warnings:
pkgbuild-introspection-git W: Dependency bash included but already satisfied
pkgbuild-introspection-git W: Dependency included and not needed ('pacman')

Sorry a bit OT, but you might as well alias, for root, `yaourt -Suya` to some command which downloads and executes malicious bash scripts.

falconindy commented on 2015-01-04 15:46

No, you have an error with yaourt. Please stop trying to build packages as root.

Hello, I have an error while installing this AUR package :

makepkg: invalid option '--asroot'
Unable to read PKGBUILD
==> ERROR: unable to update

I'm root under my computer, and launch the update with #yaourt -Suya

I think you should change the description, as mkaurball is deprecated and mksrcinfo will be the preferred way to create a .SRCINFO file in the future (when AUR 4.0.0 is released). For completeness sake, in the mean time it's necessary to create source tarballs using `makepkg --source`.

And one more nit-picking comment: the maintainer in the PKGBUILD is no longer correct, if the maintainer line on this web page is correct.

Thanks, fixed. In the future, bug reports should be sent to github.

Hi, commit b23cb91960 broke mkaurball - there's one more reference to the srcinfo_create left in at line 84.

Thanks for the reply.

I've just noticed that the there's an offical pkgbuild-introspection package in the Arch's repo. Yaourt didn't show it as a proposal to installation. :/ It only showed the *-git package, so I thought that it's the only version available. :P

Well, m4 is part of base-devel. If you're building packages, you're required to have that installed. I don't know how you managed to find a carriage return in the source file -- it simply isn't there in the git repo.
