[Resolved] Create a package with different version than extra

The current vim version (9.0.0910-1) has a bug that's very annoying to me and that was fixed upstream on version 9.0.961.

Because of that I'm trying to find a way to install locally a different version for the vim package, where should I start? Should I remove the package from the official repository, clone the PKGBUILD, change and install from local?

Just FYI, the vim project does not do release tags. Instead, they think tagging practically every commit is a good idea. That makes it very hard to follow.

If a more recent tag has a bug fix, create a bug report to let the package maintainer know.

Yes, there is a bug fix upstream but the bug report guidelines states to not create a bug report in that case. The vim package is already flagged as out-of-date, given the past releases frequency this should be fixed in less than a month.

I ended up downgrading my current version of vim and gvim.

Thanks yochananmarqos.

Ah, right. That's a good point.
