Please remove skype4py as the optional dependency, it is non functional, the support has been dropped.

Please add something like backup=('/etc/bitlbee/motd.txt') so the MOTD isn't overwritten on rebuild.

'any' is for packages that are architecture independent in their compiled state, and will generate -any packages. The recommendation here seems to be to include only architectures officialy supported by arch in the PKGBUILD.

What stops you from using "makepkg -A" to ignore the arch array?

ChrisLane commented on 2018-03-14 17:20 (UTC)

@dequis why not just set the supported architectures to 'any' or add aarch64? The source is compiled on the machine it's being installed on anyway. Quite a hinderance doing this manually myself.

Thank you! One more Q, 'systemctl restart bitlbee' executes without error, but Bitlbee does not restart. Am I doing this right?

Just install purple-skypeweb-git

Strykar commented on 2018-02-07 23:12 (UTC)

Any chance this could support skypeweb instead of skyped/skype4py as suggested by Bitlbee devs? "The Skype API is deprecated and may have issues, such as losing messages You should use skypeweb instead." -

makepkg -A

Could you please make this available for the 'aarch64' architecture?
