AUR Package Updates


  • archversion.conf: Non-VCS packages go in here. The URL provided should lead to a page with releases, and the regular expression should parse the release with brackets around the portion matching the version.
  • develversion.conf: VCS packages go in here. Their pkgver function is used to determine whether they have updates.
  • noversion.txt: Packages that shouldn't be checked for updates go in here.
  • checkversion: Run this script to check for updates.


  1. Build and install archversion-envconfig-git
  2. Clone this repo as .updates inside the directory containing your AUR packages and modify archversion.conf, develversion.conf and noversion.txt
  3. Create a script that changes to this repository's directory and runs checkversion
