So if I understand correctly, each PKGBUILD would have a build() function to actually build, and a fake_install() function that usually contains something like 'make install'? This seems like a pretty sane idea, although some of our PKGBUILDs are a bit convoluted.
Yes, that's correct.
- fixed flyspray bug #6468 -- Localized dates for build/install date
Ooo, we'll definitely look at this.
Well fixed probably isn't the right word. I followed the suggestion of using the ISO 8601 date format YYYY-MM-DDThh:mm:ssTZD (eg 1997-07-16T19:20:30+01:00) in .PKGINFO, pacman/libalm still needs patched to localize the date.
- added the ability to choose between usr/man and usr/share/man (var
(_MAN_DIR) at the top of the script.)
This should maybe even be in makepkg.conf.
Yeah that would be better.
Welcome to the list, hope you can help us get a lot of these fixes into the upstream makepkg.
