Hi I am having a go at making a PKGBUILD on my Arch.
At the moment my aim is to make a proper pkgbuild so that I can install the program with pacman on my pc.
Yes I know I can try to install the program without doing this but I want to try building a basic package for some experience.

I have a few questions and will seek answers on a one by one basis to keep things nice and simple.

I have found a .rpm of the program I want to archify. At the .rpm page I can also see a link to the source code and a link to some patches.
Here are the links,



Bear in mind when I say I will ask one question at a time I am a long term Python fan.

First question,

Will the source file contain the patches or will I have to add the patches to the source file to create the pkgbuild ?

At the top of those issues: security. IT remains responsible for the security, visibility, and performance of applications and users that now sit outside the business’ traditional zone of control. Three-quarters of respondents [1]to a recent IDC survey say that the ability to provide secure remote application access is a priority.
