I needed to install setuptools_scm for sucessfull build

pacman -S python-setuptools-scm

Seems like this is missing dependency? Worth a update of PKGBUILD?

Might be just my issue: Things broke for me probably after the big python update few days ago and this probably some problem on my part, but the PKGBUILD didn't mentioned I am missing python-ewmh, if that helps anyone.

@tkh23 The developers haven't released a tarball in ages, so this is very out of date. And I think it would be wrong of me to make my own tarball. Since I don't understand bzr that much, I've only been able to successfully make the caffeine-bzr package. Which works if you want to use that one instead.

Anyone is welcome to take over this package if they want to fix it.
