Hey guys, the newest version of repoctl should resolve the problems with Zstd. Sorry about that! (Will investigate it further to prevent such things causing issues in the future, as soon as I find the time. But for now, it should work.)

Also, thanks for the advice yochanmarqos, I'll see if I can implement this soon.

No need for both ln and mv when it can be done in one command:

prepare() {
  mkdir -p "$dest"
  ln -rTsf "$srcdir/${_pkgname}" "$dest/repoctl"

Please use go-pie instead of go per Go package guidelines.

Do not use the !strip option; in fact the binary needs to be stripped of the build path using the -trimpath flags:

build() {
  export GOPATH="$srcdir"
  cd "$src/cmd/repoctl"
  go build \
  -trimpath \
  -ldflags "-extldflags ${LDFLAGS}" \

I guess it does not simplify managing local repositories if a repoctl add -m dumps the whole said repositories when "adding" a package with the brand new Zstd archive format.

Hey guys, sorry for the great delay. I've updated the package to 0.14. This release also does not require git to build. Let me know if there are any problems. I will monitor these comments better now.

runical: Because the SRCINFO wasn't updated. That is the reason for the mismatch

Is there somebody there? This package needs git to build on a system without git installed (like a clean chroot). Please add it to the builddepends.

Also, your PKGBUILD rel does not match the pkgrel the AUR gives. Why?

The pkgbuild is missing git as a makedepend. Go uses it to get some libraries I guess.
