Further simplification

The section on variable parity with PKGBUILD varaibles could be summarized with better references to the pacman spec. I am sleepy, so I leave it to whomever takes interest in making this page perfect. quequotion (talk) 20:37, 6 March 2016 (UTC)

We might as well start from scratch on this one. Right now, we have a rehash of PKGBUILD and some dead/historic links. What we need instead is 1. detailed information on the SRCINFO format, and differences with PKGBUILD, e.g. pkgbase 2. how to parse it easily (the main point of the file after all) 3. libraries like python-srcinfo. -- Alad (talk) 01:07, 7 March 2016 (UTC)
Sounds great! For now, I put this up by mostly copy-pasta. Also sounds like a separate page was the right move (there's more detail to be documented, you say?). Perhaps .SRCINFO and PKGBUILD could even share a page, with due references to (and from) makepkg and pacman spec, but I'll leave it to someone else. quequotion (talk) 05:18, 7 March 2016 (UTC)
