libcvt has file conflict with xorg-server

I was trying to install xorg-server-git from aur which depends on libxcvt:

Packages (1) libxcvt-0.1.0-1

Total Installed Size:  0.03 MiB

:: Proceed with installation? [Y/n]

error: failed to commit transaction (conflicting files)
libxcvt: /usr/bin/cvt exists in filesystem (owned by xorg-server)
libxcvt: /usr/share/man/man1/cvt.1.gz exists in filesystem (owned by xorg-server)
Errors occurred, no packages were upgraded.

Nevertheless, official xorg-server from [extra] does not conflicts with libxcvt from [extra] as per its PKGBUILD.

Is this intended?

Builds on clean chroot. Check AUR comments.

Re: libcvt has file conflict with xorg-server

The issue is not directly related to xorg-server-git from aur.
Both xorg-server and libxcvt from [extra] owns /usr/bin/cvt.
Updated the first post to make it clearer.

Re: libcvt has file conflict with xorg-server

cvt link-out seems to be a fairly recent event, https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/xorg … ent-821781 which seems scheduled for 1.21, https://gitlab.freedesktop.org/xorg/xse … ssues/1142
