I used following method to generate pkgver

I found everything is OK, but the web display the wrong version number as:

I suggest to added a blocker to stop user upload invalid version number package.
That include '/', '}' char. Or more, it use a regular expression to check if it match the <version>-<release> format.

Reason for closing:  Duplicate
Additional comments about closing:  Dupe of  FS#15043 . Also, this is probably never gonna be implemented unless we decide to write a full bash parser.

I found in source=(file lists).
The variable used there can not use bash's variable functions.
The pkgver has such limitation.
I suggest add a check on upload php web page to prevent such problem.

OK, if it can not just check invalid char exist there.
This issue should be close.
