Marking maintainers in a PKGBUILD
Current and past maintainers of packages on the MPR MUST have a commented line at the top of the PKGBUILD with their name/username followed by their email address.
An exception to this rule exists for bot accounts, which may be omitted at the discretion of the primary maintainer of a package.
The email address may appear normally or disguised, at the discretion of the user.
Maintainers and Co-Maintainers should both be listed as maintainers, with previous maintainers being listed as contributors.
With that, regard the following format when entering maintainers and contributors into a PKGBUILD:
# Maintainer: John Doe <firstname.lastname@example.org> # Maintainer: Jane Doe <janedoe at example dot com> # Contributor: Foo Bar <email@example.com>
Entering the maintainers into
# Maintainer comments is vital to the
Maintainer field in the built package functioning properly.
