Thanks a lot, issue solved!

You made a good point here. Might be worth discussing this with the AUR developers on the mailing list.

I updated the version info written in PKGBUILD. You will not receive notification any more.

P.S. Acturally I can not understand why there should be a static "pkgver" column for a -git package. Nor can I understand why "v0.8.19.2" < "0". :-)

My fault. You are right. The built pkgver is correct.

However, something seems to be wrong with the package detail. Since it is shown as `translate-shell-git 0-1`, I constantly get an update notification:

~ pacaur -k
:: aur translate-shell-git v0.8.19.2.gf45d3f5-1 -> 0-1

Any idea how to fix this?

I'm getting v0.8.19.2.gf45d3f5-1 at pacman -Qi translate-shell-git after installing.

Could you please try executing
git describe --always | sed 's|-|.|g'
at the git repository?

I don't think --long changes the behavior.

Unfortunately, yes.

Are you sure that the pkgver() is correct?

Package Details: translate-shell-git 0-1

Seems also wrong to me.

m13253 commented on 2014-08-26 12:35


The current pkgver() is already generating the same result. Are you still getting an empty version package?

Below an updated PKGBUILD that uses a working pkgver().

Thanks for packaging!
