Does not build for me. Compiling the man pages fail, even with python{,2}-docutils installed:

  CCLD     readtags
RST2MAN   man/ctags.1
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/bin/rst2man", line 21, in <module>
    from docutils.core import publish_cmdline, default_description
ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'docutils'
make[1]: *** [Makefile:7357: man/ctags.1] Error 1

I think bash should be removed from the list of runtime dependencies.

@J5lx Yeah, I understand your line of thinking. My line of thinking is rather that AUR is an absolute wild west anyway, so a little bit of ill-considered patching can't hurt the standards of quality much.

I've pushed uctags-git for anyone else who may want a universal-ctags package that can be installed in parallel with ctags.

@cbb I see your point, but ctags is what upstream chose and I’m not exactly a fan of making more downstream changes than necessary – just like the TUs are advised not to include any patches in official packages that have not been accepted into upstream. Besides, ctags is often used internally by other tools and some of them might not allow changing the binary used.

This package should be in the official repository...

Any chance we could rename /usr/bin/ctags to /usr/bin/uctags and remove conflicts=('ctags')? Many distros still only package the original ctags and it's useful to be able to install both on Arch for testing compatibility etc.

J5lx commented on 2018-02-14 15:37

That's right, but those packages are in base-devel and thus assumed to be installed and not explicitly listed.

This depends on autoconf and automake.

Please replace "mkdir" with "mkdir -p", otherwise the build fails unless I remove the old temporary files created since the last build:

==> Starting check()...
mkdir: cannot create directory ‘/tmp/makepkg/universal-ctags-git/src/testhome’: File exists
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in check().
Error installing universal-ctags-git : exit status 1

Disregard my previous comment -- I thought the tests were super slow to run but I think the test runner just got stuck the first time I tried. On second attempt they actually seem fast enough to not really matter.
