@caleb No problem at all! =)

Hey @aperez I apologize about my last commit (42a95ed) being falsely attributed to you. I had done the Gentium Plus related package name update too but you pushed before I did, so I had to rebase on your version. I then accidentally squashed my other work into your commit, and when straightening that out I forgot to reset the commit author!

@caleb indeed that worked, thanks :)

@chilledfrogs That seems to be a problem with the lua-busted package. The binary installed in /usr/bin/busted was referencing the AUR build directory! Oops. I've just updated it to fix the paths and bumped the package release. Can you update and try that?

Hi there guys,

I noticed that check() fails since it tries to find busted in the package cache directory (using yay at least) instead of the busted binary present in $PATH... Could anyone indicate how to fix this?

@otini, @jmx: I have updated the checksums and the PKGBUILD to include a missing dependency. Things should work now, here for me Sile will happily build the example documents.

I just tried to install this package and when running the command sile, got the error that the module justenoughicu was not found. The package sile-git works.

for me makepkg fails for v0.9.5.1 due to checksum mismatch. This is what I get for sha512sum on the current release's tarball:

@ninjaaron That would be an upstream issue, not a packaging one. If you're pretty sure there is an issue with Sile please report it upstream at and we'd be glad to help. I suspect you just aren't loading the docbook stuff into the parser before throwing the XML at it, but if that isn't clear from the documentation that would be something to fix upstream as well.

Not sure if this is an Arch bug or an upstream bug, but trying to build from docbook XML fails with this error:

! This isn't a SILE document! at examples/article-template.xml
