Hi Georg, thank you for your reply. If I am understanding correctly, pkgrel is for changes to the PKGBUILD, and pkgver is for changes to the actual sources. Is this correct?

Hi Yash, and welcome to archlinux. pkgrel is the internal revision of the package, e.g. the packaging version. This allows improvements on the package without bumping the software release version and is often used for binary rebuild to adapt to changed dependencies etc. Georg
Kind of. pkgrel is for changes to the built package, there's plenty of changes you can make to the PKGBUILD that don't change the actual package; those don't require a pkgrel change.
Whitespace or quoting changes. Switching from "mkdir -p foo && cp foo bar/baz" to "install -Dm644 foo bar/baz". Changing the CMake generator between GNU Makefiles and Ninja.
