1) Using master/trunk/etc is the whole point of -vcs recipes (-git, -svn, ...). For stable/released versions, use the appropriate recipe; https://aur.archlinux.org/pkgbase/looking-glass/

2) The user needs to make the package himself and is completely aware of which version he/she is building (or should be anyway.. If they are not, I don't want to get anywhere near their system ever..). Furthermore, -vcs versions need explicit rebuilding by the user as well so this process is something that he/she has to repeat continuously.

3) Any problems with the PKGBUILD should be directed here, not at the devs. Problems with the software should be send to the devs according to their policies. So if they say they need certain info, provide said info. If they say they do not support or process bug reports for master builds, don't submit bugs for the master build!! (be it build manually or with this recipe)

All that said, assuming you are the gnif that owns the github repo, how many bogus reports are we talking about? Aside from that, removing this does not stop people from building master though, nor does it remove the recipe from user's systems if they already grabbed it, nor does it stop anyone from re-providing/uploading a recipe to build master. Hell, the chances that a -vcs version does not appear for any given non-vcs (where possible) is quite small. People are even providing -vcs versions for actual packages you can find in the Arch repositories.

Please stop this package from pulling the master build from git. The master build is NOT supported and often becomes incompatible with the host application. This is continuing to cause many bogus bug reports because this package has not followed the clear instructions to only use tagged releases.

At this time, the current alpha version with a working windows host executable is A11.

Works great. Thou performance still needs some tweaking. Hope that vulkan rendering fixes the issues
