If v10.1.2 supports pacman > 6, why the < 6 check in the depends array?

jguer commented on 2020-12-15 08:41

@maverick1 yay is built with versioned bindings meaning it requires a recompile when libalpm is updated. Right now building yay with -tags six will use the pacman6 bindings. This yay-bin was compiled without -tags six so will only be compatible with pacman5, once pacman6 is released I'll update yay-bin to build using -tags six by default

I am wondering why pacman<6 is being added now. It should have been added for previous builds but not this one according to the changelog.

Why does v10.1.2 require pacman<6 when in the changelog it clearly says support for >6 was added instead? Shouldn't it be just depends=('pacman'...)?

yay-bin depends on binutils which provides strip
