@caleb: Thanks for the tip. I have added lua-filesystem as dependecy like you suggest, and added you as co-maintainer. Thanks for your willingness to help out :)

Thanks for the update.

You should also add 'lua-luafilesystem' as a dependency. The upstream docs form 0.9.2 forgot to call it out but some of the SILE typesetting packages use it. You wouldn't as the system will run without in until you happen to try to typeset a document that uses one of the SILE packages that depends on that Lua rock, but when you did it would bomb as it expects it to be there. See for details.

If you're interested, with the new AUR4 system you could list me as a co-maintainer. As I'm working with the upstream project I'm likely to know what the packaging needs are and when updates happen and I'd be happy to collaborate via git on this one.

@caleb: I have updated the PKGBUILD with your changes. After the 0.9.1 release I tried updating the package but I could not get the installed Sile to work (there some path lookup issues upstream), so I was waiting for 0.9.2 to be released — which somehow I missed. Thanks for your updated PKGBUILD, I have listed you as contributor in the PKGBUILD header :-)

See also sile-git package in the AUR for devel version.

For anybody trying to get this working before either the current maintainer updates this or orphans it so I can post this, here is a working recipe for 0.9.2. Note the build system has changed drastically upstream, pango has been replaced by harfbuzz, and there is a whacky dependency on a local copy of a library that doesn't have an actual release yet.

pkgdesc='Modern typesetting system inspired by TeX'

prepare () {
cd "${pkgname}-${pkgver}"
# Adapt contents of upstream projects
rm -rf libtexpdf
cp -a ../libtexpdf-${_libtexpdf_ver} libtexpdf
autoreconf --install
(cd libtexpdf; autoreconf -I m4)
sed 's/rm -f core/rm -f/' -i configure

build () {
cd "${pkgname}-${pkgver}"

package () {
cd "${pkgname}-${pkgver}"
make install DESTDIR="${pkgdir}/"

This package has been in need of updates for several months. If you are not going to maintain it would you be willing to orphan it so I can?

@s_tec: Good catch, thanks! I have added the dependency already and uploaded the update.

This package should depend on "pango" as well. It won't run otherwise.
