http://archlinux.2023198.n4.nabble.com – Hello, I have just become the maintainer of my first package in AUR,'linux-next'. It's name lacks -git prefix, though it is using git to fetch source code. I figure out that I have these courses of action: 1)Ask for the deletion of 'linux-next' package in favor of 'linux-next-git'; 2)Create a separate package 'linux-next-git' which uses git by fetching sources like described in Wiki page "VCS PKGBUILD Guidelines", but keep 'linux-next' and use prepare() mechanism, which will utilize 'git clone --depth=1' (less to download, useful for one-time building); 3) Don't create any new packag (Distributions)
