Hey I heard this package did some funky stuff with postinstall hooks. I've taken the time to add the dependencies to the PKGBUILD. Do not use pip as root to install stuff in AUR packages.

    printf "r%s.%s" "$(git rev-list --count HEAD)" "$(git rev-parse --short HEAD)"

build() {
  cd ${_pkgname}
  python build

package() {
  cd ${_pkgname}
  python install --root="$pkgdir/" --optimize=1

wtf, this runs pip as root to install a bunch of stuff outside of pacman in the .install script?

The dependencies should be installed as dependencies, not mess up my system like that.

I get this error:
