I maintain a package called linux-rt. Due to how the old interface worked and how it refused me to use linux-rt-3.6.5-rt14-1.src.tar.gz, i think because of the extra hyphen in the package version number, i've been using linux-rt-3.6.5_rt14-1.src.tar.gz instead. Now i just tried to upload a new version into aur 2.0.0 and it refuses the upload with a message: Invalid name: only lowercase letters are allowed.

This task depends upon

Are you tring to upload a split package?

Yes, and i think i forgot the workaround. Let me go play with it again

How do you make such a package? makepkg bails if pkgver contains a hyphen.

ah, yes that might have been the way it was. I needed to add the underscore for makepkg, and a workaround for aur. Was a long time ago, so have forgotten the details. I don't have all that much time today, but think most likely it is an issue of being a split package. Will let you know once i've fixed the script and tried uploading again

Yes, it was the spit package that tripped me up. Got it uploaded now with the usual workaround. Sorry for the noise.

IMO, it would be desirable if AUR would support upload of split packages too.

Regarding makepkg, it would be nice if it would accept an underscore in the package name, since the real version number of the realtime patched kernel is indeed 3.6.5-rt15, so linux-rt-3.6.5-rt15-1 would be preferable to linux-rt-3.6.5_rt15-1.
