Alright, sorry. My bad. I was with the VCS guidelines in my head as they say you should remove letter prefixes

@TheGoliath:

Thanks for mentioning.

However, https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Arch_package_guidelines#Package_versioning states:

Package versions (i.e. PKGBUILD#pkgver) should be the same as the version released by the author. Versions can include letters if need be (eg, nmap's version is 2.54BETA32). Version tags may not include hyphens! Letters, numbers, and periods only.

And the t is essentially part of upstreams version: tapecalc -V prints it.

So, I think that removing the t is more against the guidelines than keeping it.

Can you point me where it says that it is against?

Can you remove the t from the pkgver? It is against the AUR Packaging guidelines
