Is there any AUR helper that can keep src folder after build?

I am user of ros2-galactic AUR package. This package clones and builds a lot of source into ~/.cache/yay/ros2-galactic/src. Everytime yay builds AUR packages, it delete src and pkg folder afterward. Is there any AUR helper that can keep src folder after build? I just want to not re-download and clean build ros2-galactic huge source every time there is an update. I don't mind ugly hack as solution to this problem.

Just build it without using a helper... You could write a wrapper script to automate some of it if it is that important.

Shows again pacman wrappers are useless if you want to do anything out of the norm.

Considering ROS has 100s of AUR packages, you'll at least need to get the list of dependencies somehow. (e.g. aur-depends from aurutils, or auracle buildorder)

auracle buildorder and auracle outdated are all I need from an AUR helper. The rest is a bit of git here and a swat of bash there.

You could also configure makepkg to save those files somewhere ...

Did you use the guided installer ? If yes, I can't help you.

Does not work for https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/ros2-galactic/ as the repo in source https://github.com/ros2/ros2/tree/relea … c-20210523 contains ros2.repos a yaml file of repos which vcs import will clone during prepare.
Would need some sort of scripting to convert ros2.repos to a source array including determining if each target is a branch,  tag or commit.

upstream provides source code in a non-stasndard way, got it.

Why would they do this instead of using git submodules?
