That looks like the way to go. I can follow what it does, but I'm missing how
the kde-meta/PKGBUILD actually invokes the module PKGBUILDs (eg. kdebase). For
example, in kde-meta, I see:
pkgdesc=('Meta package for kdebase')
Then in the kdebase/PKGBUILD I see:
optdepends=('ruby: servicemenu installation')
But what I don't get is where is the magic that ties the kde-meta/PKGBUILD to
the kdebase/PKGBUILD? I can't see where the kde-meta script calls anything to
trigger a build. Is there some magic in the 'package_' prefix, or, is it just a
road-map that gets read by a script that subsequently loops through the actual
kde/modules calling makepkg -s for each module?
Thanks for any help you can provide.
