I just adopted this thing and migrated it to meson. It passes namcap and it runs OK, so it's probably fine.

Oh, wait, I see klusark is no longer the maintainer...

Hey, klusark, in case you aren't subscribed to the mailing list, I thought you should know weston is switching to meson.

You should be able to build it with meson now. I would change it myself, but you know more about this PKGBUILD than I do, so I figured it would be more economical for you to do the switch. Pretty please?

There's a grace period, so the PKGBUILD isn't really out of date. Not yet, anyway.

Hi, wayland-protocols is a makedepends, and Weston doesn’t depend on the -git version of it, everything is already in a release.

shoober420, feel free to copy this package, add the patches, and upload it under a new name (such as weston-git-nvidia). I'm going to keep this package as it is upstream.

Scimmia commented on 2016-03-23 15:03

Once they're accepted upstream, they'll be available here automatically. I don't think it's wise to include patches before they're accepted.

Would it be possible to add the NVIDIA patches that are posted on the Weston mailing list to this package so we can launch Weston natively with NVIDIA proprietary drivers?

@linkmauve, done.

Hi, Weston now depends on wayland-protocols, I packaged it earlier, please pull this repository which contains the necessary fixes to this PKGBUILD:

@linkmauve, done. Thanks for the suggestions.
