Upstream has migrated its source to GitHub:

Until a new chirp-git package is created, users are advised to install chirp-next to get the latest development snapshot.

Upstream only supports Python 3 now.

And I also suggest that you implement a Mercurial tag based pkgver().

The following code will generate a version like 0.4.0.r1282.gc965de0b862b:

pkgver() {
    cd chirp.hg
    hg log -r . --template '{latesttag}.r{latesttagdistance}.g{node|short}\n' | sed 's/^release_//;s/_/./g'

Please kindly enable testing in PKGBUILD's check() function.

Test dependencies (a.k.a, checkdepends) for [testenv:unit] and [testenv:driver] are available on AUR.

@davvore33: Can be fixed by rebuilding python2-gobject2 against the newest libffi package as the compat library got removed from libffi.

Probably can be fixed if you install libffi7 package.

freshly installed Traceback (most recent call last): File "/usr/bin/chirpw", line 131, in <module> from chirp.ui import mainapp File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/chirp/ui/", line 26, in <module> import gtk File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/gtk-2.0/gtk/", line 30, in <module> import gobject as _gobject File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/gobject/", line 47, in <module> from gobject.constants import * File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/gobject/", line 24, in <module> import gobject._gobject ImportError: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

might be a problem with python2

Specifically regarding the inclusion of chirpc: Upstream confirmed that it's not ready for release, and not getting very much development attention[1]. In this case, I will avoid putting it in the main package for the time being. Since it's still useful, I'm considering adding a split package just for chirpc and its documentation. [1]:

Not only was it poorly written (removed necessary quoting, unnecessary use of export, unnecessary file creation, inconsistent/ambiguous pkgver creation, superfluous build() function, inclusion of unreleased software...), it was an exact copy of chirp, and it was done despite my numerous attempts to communicate these exact objections.

Muflone, if you look at the commit he made it should be obvious why. It was complete and total crap.
