kodi-devel-bin is the -devel version of community/kodi-bin, which means
that it should be named kodi-bin-devel.
It's no different from taking, say, systemd & systemd-libs, and turning
it into systemd-git and systemd-git-libs, which is also wrong... or
would be, except that systemd-git is better maintained. :)
This is aside for the fact that I find the name of the community package
"kodi-bin" to be strange, since it seems to be the x11 analogue to
I'm curious what made you choose to call it "kodi-bin" instead of what
seems to me like the more descriptive and accurate "kodi-x11". Perhaps
it might make sense to change the pkgname?
