[Solved] pacman 5.2 - makepkg warning wrt empty PACKAGER

On my system I don't have an entry for PACKAGER in makepkg.conf or PKGBUILDs .
This has never caused warnings and resulted in

packager = Unknown Packager

in .PKGINFO files.

with pacman 5.2 I get this warning twice from makepkg :

==> WARNING: PACKAGER should have the format 'Example Name <email@address.invalid>'

full makepkg output below.
Is there a way to avoid these warnings other then setting a value for PACKAGER ?





$ makepkg -Crs

Re: [Solved] pacman 5.2 - makepkg warning wrt empty PACKAGER

Think you have to modify /usr/share/makepkg/lint_config/variable.sh and comment out that line and replace it with true.  Dirty hack but works.

...
  # pacman should be able to extract an email address from PACKAGER for WKD key lookup
  local match='^([^<>]+ )?<[^<>]*>$'
  if ! [[ $PACKAGER =~ $match ]]; then
    true
    #warning "$(gettext "PACKAGER should have the format 'Example Name <email@address.invalid>'")"
  fi
...

Re: [Solved] pacman 5.2 - makepkg warning wrt empty PACKAGER

Looks like there are multiple options then :

- edit /usr/share/makepkg/lint_config/variable.sh
- use pacman-git (fix has been added to master)
- ignore warning until next release
- set PACKAGER to a dummy value

Thanks for the help.
