Oops ! I used the wrong words ..

What I meant was exactly what you explained . Every time I update the package using yaourt , it checks the git repo and compile from there .

Currently I reformated the server because of an RC kernel issues (noob) , and I would really use a -git package of RTSlib-fb + Targetcli-fb as editing those files manually would take alot of time . Of course if you have the time .

Thank you , really appreciated .

That is not how it works.
-git packages are updated every time they are built. So the PKGBUILD doesn't change in the AUR, but "makepkg" will check for the current commit and update the pkgver with the current date.
So it would be up to you to build targetcli-fb-git/rtslib everytime you need it or automatically (I wouldn't suggest that. It can break things unexpectedly)

You can also create a "-local" package that basically just creates symlinks to a folder on your machine, which again is a repository, which again gets a "git pull" with cron.
I can't create that in the AUR, since it does depend on your local machine.
Have a look at this example though: (another package, but this is how it works)

There will be a new targetcli/rtslib release "early this coming week".
I'd recommend to stick to that.
You do have a running build now after updating some files manually once, right?

Ping me again if you would still use a -git. I will create one then.

Yes , if a -git package is going to be updated automatically as new commits get pushed into the repo .

Thanks !

Hm, I followed that ticket, but there is no new release yet and I can't find that one commit (or 2) I could use as a patch without breaking other things.

I could create -git packages for rtslib and targetcli. Would that help?

Can you update the package please ?

The GitHub repo contains an important ib_srpt bug fix now .

thank you .

I included the systemd file from fedora, which works fine.
The old sysvinit file is still provided for now, but will go away in a couple of releases.

I also explicitely added the free branch of configshell to make automatic install easier without pulling epydoc.
Feel free to uninstall epydoc and dependencies now.

This package still doesn't include a systemd file.
Help is appreciated at

This also needs the free branch of rtslib. You can use either version of python2-configshell, though. The free branch doesn't depend on epydoc:

For this version there is also a manpage available.
