AUR Package

AUR Package

Hey Everyone,

I wanted to introduce myself and thank/complement everyone for their 
work on entityx.

I'm also interested to know if anyone here would benefit from an Arch 
Linux user repository package for entityx; I've put one together for my 
own use, but I'd be happy to upload it to the AUR for everyone else to 
use if a) the developers don't mind b) someone might get some use out of 
it. It just pulls down the latest version from Alec's GitHub repo, 
builds, runs tests and installs.

Hi Scott, 

I think an AUR package would be great, thanks.

Actually, I now do versioned releases too: 

https://github.com/alecthomas/entityx/releases

Though of course, the Git repo is usually more useful.

It wouldn't be any trouble to maintain two packages, one for the latest 
versioned release and one that just pulls from the current GitHub repo. 
Do releases get announced on this list? If so I can keep the package 
up-to-date by revising it every time a release is announced.

The GitHub one is easy to maintain, because it automatically checks 
versions based on git revisions, so as long as the repo doesn't move it 
will continue to work.

I'll build with tests on the GitHub one, so updates won't go through if 
the tests don't pass, but won't build tests on the versioned releases 
because it would just be a waste of compile time.

Thanks again, I should have them up some time this week.

That was easier than I expected; here are the links:

https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/entityx/
https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/entityx-git/

Let me know if there are any glaring issues with the packaging. I 
assumed the license in COPYING was MIT, and I just used your description 
from the README.
