Arrgh! Sorry hit tab and return and this bug posted before I was ready.

The source in the PKGBUILD appears wrong. Attempting to build gtk2 from the current PKGBUILD results in:

makepkg -o
==> Making package: gtk2 2.24.31-1 (Fri 10 Sep 2021 08:30:22 PM CDT)

==> ERROR: Failure while downloading gtk+ git repo

The current repository seems to be:, not git://$_commit. Does the PKGBUILD need updating? I needed to build and include the docs which are currently removed.

Since this bug got posted before I was ready, we can close it and I can write a new one if needed. Let me know.
