[solved] How to get old PKGBUILDs?

https://bugs.archlinux.org/task/30734 means the usual way is broken for some packages. I can get current PKGBUILDs for packages both from testing and non-testing repos from the ABS, but how can I access the old ones? If I can get the diff + commiter's comments too, I'll give you some bunny-shaped chocolate-chip cookies.

syslinux 4.06-2 is currently in [core] https://www.archlinux.org/packages/core/i686/syslinux/ but the svntogit web interface shows only info about syslinux 5.10-3 from [testing] https://projects.archlinux.org/svntogit … s/syslinux and the update history seems to follow the [testing] package https://projects.archlinux.org/svntogit … s/syslinux

What would be the easiest way around this?
https://www.archlinux.org/svn/ mentions a wiki page https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php?ti … S_From_SVN but 'svn log package-name' shows the log for the package from [testing] ...
I know nothing about git, svn etc., so a step-by-step copy-paste-ready solution is preferable ;P

You will have to choose an older revision in the log.

Re: [solved] How to get old PKGBUILDs?

I want to see what changes have been made to the syslinux PKGBUILD from [core]. It has recently been updated to version 4.06-2.
Where can I get the diff?

No, the next one: syslinux 4.06-1 -> syslinux 4.06-2.

Just clone the git repo and look at the history for [core] ...

$ git clone --single-branch -b packages/syslinux git://projects.archlinux.org/svntogit/packages
$ cd packages
$ git log repos/core-x86_64
