[pacman-dev] makepkg: Add -q/--question output

Hi all,

This is a request for comments on FS#18709.   It requests adding a 
-q/--question option similar to make which does nothing but returns 0 if 
all packages are already built and 1 if not.  It might be useful in scripts.

Any opinions on this?  I see no reason why not.  The name is a bit weird 
but given that is what make uses, I see no reason not to be consistent.

There is a patch (http://bugs.archlinux.org/task/18709?getfile=5006) 
which is fairly minor, but needs reviewing and documentation.
