Also testing the package like this doesn't do much.

You are testing using the dependencies listed in the source repository that are installed into a virtualenv. If you want the tests to reflect the users system, you should test it using the direct pytest command that is used in the tox.ini

This would mean that you need to add the test dependencies directly to make-depends. tox would then no longer be needed.

And now git is no longer needed. Also you shouldn't really need the provides. It's the same name anyway.

You added "make" itself to the makedepends, not "git".

No problem!

I've implemented the changes you suggested.

Hate to be a stick in the mud, but you didn't up the pkgrel when you changed the commit.

Also, since you're using git to build the package, you should add it to the make dependencies since git isn't in base-devel (even though most AUR users will have it installed). Right now, this package fails to build in a fresh chroot/nspawn sandbox.

Err, I think you took the release too far. 1.1.11 isn't released yet, it's in development. When 1.1.11 is ready, the author removes the suffix from the version in the NEWS file, and the most recent is 1.1.10. Not sure if it's a great idea to go down a version once you've pushed one, but I don't think 1.1.11 is what you want out.

No problem!

I have switched the PKGBUILD to use the git repository and appropriate commit ID for the time being. I'll be pushing the changes shortly.

If you don't want to wait for that, you can also just use the release commit to pick out an archive. For 1.1.10, that's:

But I'm not familiar enough with the author to know if the wait will be long or short.

The version bump flew under my radar, I'll confirm it's working and bump the pkgver.

EDIT: There is no tarball for us to download yet. I'll email Witten about it.

Forgive me for asking, but are the YAML library version problems the reason why this package isn't at the latest release (1.1.10)? I hesitated marking this out of date, but if it's possible I'd be great to get it updated since there have been a number of worthwhile changes since 1.1.7.
