@sdothum, thanks for the heads up, I'll look into the requests thing. I don't want to just blindly add it, since that suggests that it's doing stuff with the network during the build, which is troubling.

The warnings are to be expected; this is the doc issue I was referencing below. Since it doesn't break the build, I'm not going to bother with it. I've already pushed a fix upstream which will be part of the next release.

I had to add python2-requests dependency to avoid sphinx error during build.

Still got ImportError: No module named addressbooks

but build completed.

I sat down with this again, and couldn't reproduce the failure I was getting before (warnings still showed up, but it built). The doc issue is fixed in master, but it should be fine to release it as-is so I've done so. Cheers.

Alot 0.4 is out. There's an upstream doc bug that causes build() to fail, so rather than patching it locally I'm trying to push the fix upstream:

With luck, we'll get a corrected release soonish, and can just skip straight to that. I'll keep you all posted.

@Lokaltog, thanks for catching this. I hadn't -Syu'd, so hadn't run into it.

It seems the python2-magic package has changed name from Magic-file-extensions to file-magic, which breaks this package. This change resolves the issue for me:

# "Magic-file-extensions", as opposed to the python-magic on pypi. The
# result is that the alot executable can't find the module, so we patch

@lamarpavel, you're welcome.

Thanks for taking your time to update this, I couldn't figure out how to deal with the new setuptools myself.

Updated to the new release (0.3.7).

zerathidune commented on 2016-01-07 03:33

As has been pointed out to me, the package is out of date. I'm working on updating it, but things have been hectic and the PKGBUILD I have sitting on my machine doesn't quite generate a working package; alot 0.3.7 uses setuptools' facilities for generating executable scripts, and something related to that isn't working, so you get an error when running the command. I'll update it as soon as I can, but given that it hasn't happened immediately I wanted to make sure I was keeping folks up to date. Stay tuned.
