Hi, would you mind updating the /var/games permissions fix as it is in the extra/emacs PKGBUILD?

Currently core/filesystem says the mode is 775, but this package says it's 755.

Edit: thanks!

Looks like they will be doing 25.3 as an emergency release.

Emacs 25.2 suffers from a trivially exploitable remote-code-execution vulnerability [1]. I’m not sure how fast things like this are backported (if at all), but since this is a rather concerning issue, maybe it might make sense to apply the patch [2] in the PKGBUILD to get this shipped to folks who don’t know about this and who haven’t applied any mitigation in their init.el.

You can just do a rebuild (`makepkg -f && pacman -U emacs-lucid...`), but yes bumping pkgrel forces it for everyone, which is convenient.

Please bump pkgrel to fix "emacs: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory" ?

When installing cask I just noticed some packages actually do use versioned requirements, so it might be convenient to have this «provides=emacs=$pkgver». For repo packages this seems to be the standard, so we should probably do this for our packages as well.

I don't really like building differently than the user expects (assuming they installed `hardening-wrapper` and configured it as they like), but it seems like Emacs just doesn't build with PIE, and their solution on other platforms (where PIE is the default) is to explicitly disable PIE with linker flags. So I added `HARDENING_PIE=0`.

Unfortunately, the build currently seems to segfault when hardening-wrapper is installed (this will causet the build to segfault). Do you think it’s sensible to «export HARDENING_PIE=0» in the PKGBUILD for the time being?

Apparently this has been an issue before:

Though, for some reason, this only turned up with 25.1-4 for me.

Using ./configure --program-transform-name='s/^ctags$/ctags.emacs/' in the PKGBUILD we can delete the ctags workaround to simplify the package() function:

# remove conflict with ctags package
mv "$pkgdir"/usr/bin/{ctags,ctags.emacs}
mv "$pkgdir"/usr/share/man/man1/{ctags.1.gz,ctags.emacs.1}

edit: On upgrade with --gameuser, I get:

warning: directory permissions differ on /var/games/
filesystem: 775 package: 755
