buildnotify-hg has been deleted. All comments have been brought over to this package, buildnotify-git. All comments below were for the old buildnotify-hg package.

Since the upstream moved to git, this package is no longer being maintained. Switch to "buildnotify" or "buildnotify-git" instead.

@ZimbiX would you like to take this package over? It looks like you've done the work already. Maybe you should create a new package called "buildnotify-git" (or maybe you could package the stable release which now exists and just call it "buildnotify"). If you do that, I'll mark this out of date and pin a comment linking to your new one. If you don't want to though, just let me know and I'll do it.

EDIT: I've gone and done this my self

I had to make several changes to get it installed:

# Maintainer: Tom Wadley <>

pkgdesc="Cruise Control build monitor for Windows/Linux/Mac"
depends=('python2' 'python2-pyqt5' 'python2-pytz' 'python2-dateutil')
makedepends=('mercurial' 'python2-setuptools')

_installmodule() {
  pushd "${srcdir}/buildnotify"
  /usr/bin/python2 install --root="${pkgdir}/" --optimize=1

pkgver() {
  _installmodule > /dev/null 2>&1

  version=$(PYTHONPATH="${srcdir}/buildnotify/" /usr/bin/python2 <<EOF
import pkg_resources
print pkg_resources.require('buildnotify')[0].version

  cd "${srcdir}/buildnotify"
  echo $(git describe --always | sed 's/-/./g')

package() {

  cd "${srcdir}"

  install -D -m 644 buildnotify.desktop "${pkgdir}/usr/share/applications/buildnotify.desktop"

  cd buildnotify

  install -D -m 644 icons/buildnotify.svg "${pkgdir}/usr/share/pixmaps/buildnotify.svg"

Thanks @drew33. I'll admit I didn't actually have the package installed so hadn't caught the new dependency.

Thanks Tom for the package - note that the dependency 'python2-keyring' is missing, however. Tried to push an update, but just remembered that only the maintainer can only do this - happy to take ownership if you are
