Feature Request #641
[RFC] Should [conf.sh] set HOME=$LIBREHOME ?
I Recently re-jiggered my
~/.makepkg.conf (well, now
~/.config/pacman/makepkg.conf) to use
*DEST@instead of hard-coding /home/luke@ (since on my desktop my name is still
luke, but on my new laptop, I named it
lukeshu). Anyway, this broke libremakepkg, as it loads makepkg.conf with
LIBREHOME= your actual home. My solution was to write
LIBRE prefix because I didn't want there to be any ambiguity with whether it was the "natural" home, or the "this-is-the-actual-user" home. But because it sometimes loads other config files that might reference
HOME, and these files don't nescessarily have anything to do with libretools, it seems like the right thing to do might be to set
USER=$LIBREUSER?). Or perhaps set them that way while loading config files, but not during normal execution.
