sithwm package is out of date

I cannot flag packages out of date as I am not a registered maintainer/contributor. However, upon trying to install SithWM I found its PKGBUILD was out of date when using the newest Arch image.

I took the liberty of modifying the PKGBUILD such that it would install successfully (though I am unsure if it is entirely correct and/or up to par) in the hopes someone who can modify the AUR will do so. The modified PKGBUILD:

pkgname=sithwm
pkgver=1.2.3
pkgrel=3
pkgdesc="a minimalist window manager"
url="http://sithwm.darkside.no/sithwm.html"
arch=('i686' 'x86_64')
depends=('libx11')
license=('GPL')
source=("http://sithwm.darkside.no/sn/$pkgname-$pkgver.tgz")
md5sums=('15619f6977bb0cff32a1cdce49f6530d')
build() {
  cd $srcdir/$pkgname-$pkgver
  make CNF=STORMTROOPER XROOT=/usr 
}

package() {
  cd $srcdir/$pkgname-$pkgver
  make DESTDIR=$pkgdir install
    install -Dm644 README $pkgdir/usr/share/doc/$pkgname/README
}

I imagine this would actually constitute pkgrel=4 if someone takes the liberty of fixing it. Please note that I removed the install line thus eliminating the supplied sithwm.install file as I was unsure of its purpose save to inform the user of the location of the default.sithwmrc file.

Re: sithwm package is out of date

http://sithwm.darkside.no/download.html shows the latest version available for download is 1.2.3 and the version in the AUR is also the same. So how is this out of date again ??

Re: sithwm package is out of date

OP doesn't mean that the package is out-of-date, OP means that the PKGBUILD in the AUR apparently only has a build function (no package function), which is deprecated.

grimpirate, that does not constitute a reason to flag out-of-date, it constitutes a reason to send the AUR package maintainer a request to update the PKGBUILD to reflect modern syntax. It would be courteous of you to include your proposed correction in that message.

All the best,
