I'm not against but not for. Bumping the pkgrel is "nice", but requiring it is not.

The AUR is unsupported, so any packages you install are your responsibility to update, not pacman's. If packages in the official repositories are updated, you will need to rebuild any AUR packages that depend on those libraries.

It absolutely is a common practice. You only have to look at the sheer number of python packages on the AUR that have their pkgrel bumped in the first 48 hours after a new python release to see that that is the case.

I've been through this many times with other maintainers. There's basically no downside to changing one character in one file to just ensure that everybody has a working version when they update.

The arguments against doing this do not make sense. The argument of forcing people to re-download a tarball is likely moot, as I suspect most people do not keep their downloaded sources after packaging.

Furthermore, the assumption you're making is that absolutely everybody uses a "traditional" AUR helper designed to manage packages on a single system. I use the aurutils AUR helper, which runs a full pacman package repository. I do this because I run several machines with Arch in my house, and I don't want to have to re-package everything multiple times for no reason. This means that if the package version doesn't change, there is nothing to upgrade.

And yes, I'm aware that aurutils probably has a flag or something to force rebuild a package even when the AUR metadata hasn't changed. That doesn't help - I still have to manually go to each machine and forcibly reinstall the package.

Or, you could just change one character in one file, and everybody's lives suddenly become much easier. Please reconsider your stance on this. New major python releases are coming every 12 months now. If you would prefer, I would be happy to step up as a co-maintainer to perform this task each year.

Bumping the pkgrel in AUR is not a common nor required practice. I guess that's because of python 3.9.1? I haven't updated my system yet, but I'll try to remember to bump it. Thank you for flagging iris too, that package will be just pkgver bumped.

Please could you bump the pkgrel?

Could you please bump the pkgrel to force a rebuild for python3.9?

Until this package has been updated, the following PKGBUILD can be used to install a mopidy 3 version: https://gist.github.com/tonyfinn/d635e35f5031f4b4b1d03eca795dbd3a
