Yep, that's why I proposed editing the PKGBUILD and forcing the value of 7 (the default), this way even if config is edited it will use a length of 7.
just replace --short with --short=7

But everyone could use modified settings for git. Maybe is way always to use system config.

Then I'd recommend using --short=7 (or whatever you want) in the pkgver() as the value of 8 is not the default and cannot be expected to be used on other's PCs.
This way it only triggers unwanted rebuilds

$ git config --global core.abbrev

Well, that's weird -- for me it's one digit less. And according to git documentation, mine is correct:

Instead of outputting the full SHA-1 values of object names try to abbreviate them to a shorter unique name. When no length is specified 7 is used. The minimum length is 4.


yours is giving 8 digits for some reason -- but it's not standard O.o

$ git rev-parse --short HEAD

No problem, but you seem to have made a typo when changing the version:


should be


You can also just run `makepkg`, it will update the pkgver in the PKGBUILD automatically, no need to write it manually, this is always prone to errors ;-)

Thx for suggestions. I did know that [the page]( has changed.

I'd recommend patching the *PKGBUILD* with this patch or incorporating the changes a different way:

- Use VCS-PKGBUILD guidelines for pkgver() (
- this also stops it from trying to update the package everytime
- remove `cd "$srcdir"` NOPs
- remove unnecessary messages (adhere to packaging guidelines)
- regenerate .SRCINFO with mksrcinfo
- add .gitignore

NOTE: Also add a one-time

To force the upgrade since "34326dc-1" is regarded newer than "r10.34326dc-1"
