At upstream there is a pending PR fixing the latest permission problem in context of the global file lock if the option "Run only one snapshot at a time" is enabled. I did some tests on Manjaro but would be glad if someone could give it a test before merging it. See https://github.com/bit-team/backintime/pull/1756

But "these dependencies" are listed as "Build and testing dependencies" not for regular user packages. You need this if you want to build BIT as a developer. Users don't need it.

@buhtz: Thanks. Note that these dependencies are still mentioned on https://github.com/bit-team/backintime/blob/dev/CONTRIBUTING.md#build--install.

'pm-utils' is also deprecated. It is still listed in package backintime.

I also follow the backintime comments. If you want to avoid duplicate threads, you could put comments only there.

Hello,

"--no-fuse-group" argument for ./configure has no effect and was removed long ago.

The packages pyfakefs and pylint shouldn't be a dependency. This is for development only. Users shouldn't be bothered with it.

Thanks Christian

Upstream maintainer here. It seems that on arch and arch-based systems cron/cronie is installed but not enabled. The scheduling in BIT won't work but users don't know about it. Can you add something to your AUR package to activate cron after installation or minimally warn the users about it and point them to a documentation/wiki page?

@fettouhi: Thanks. Should be fixed now.
