WARNING! This takes a long time to build, be warned. The repository size is about 13 GB. is commented out in favor of Arch Linux dependnecies (see Normally this fetches *28 GB* of dependencies. If you a have issues with the build, uncomment If you want newer builds to not have to download this content again, do not* delete the cache folder for the build.

Yeah the real joke is that they went back to .zip a little bit ago.

The real joke is that they are back on .zip now

great someone thought it would be a good idea to use rar instead of zip …

adjusted accordingly.

unziping in post_install?
The would eliminate the point of having a package almost completely.

a solution could be to extract in package() to $pkgdir or to move the content from $srcdir to $pkgdir, but the last one would break repackaging, witch is not that bad considering "source" is already a binary package, but i dislike booth ways anyway.
However you are of course free to modify the PKGBUILD to your liking, before using it.

I put makepkg's build directory into RAM (8G) and don't have that much space left to save the zip (2.5G), the zip's content (8G), the created .tar.xz package (?G) and the actual installation in /opt (8G) on my disk at the same time.

Wouldn't it be possible do all the preparations and installation of other files in package() and simply extract the zip directly to /opt/ut4 afterwards in post_install() rather than unzipping, repacking and installing it? Sounds a bit dirty to be honest, but wouldn't that mean much less work to do actually?

The new build is "a little bit" bigger than the last one, over 2.5 GB more, with binaries striped.

Unfortunately bsdtar is unable to unpack this build so i had to implement that in the prepare function using unzip.
