Yo! In April there was some discussion regarding how to properly do unit testing in Python PKGBUILDs. Felix had some amazing notes that was super useful. But as pointed out we don't really strive to document these things. To try help and spark some interest in improving the current package guidelines, I have spent a some time restructuring and rewriting parts of the Python and Golang package guidelines. I'd appreciate reviews on them!

I think this helps both fellow maintainers and AUR maintainers in writing better PKGBUILDs and sharing knowledge. If people think editing wikis are annoying, maybe we could setup a github repository with example PKGBUILDs we can work on? : https://lists.archlinux.org/pipermail/arch-dev-public/2018-April/029228.html : https://lists.archlinux.org/pipermail/arch-dev-public/2018-April/029233.html -- Morten Linderud PGP: 9C02FF419FECBE16
