python2-yaml is rather a dependency of python2-cliapp.

That is true. But it is a new version nevertheless.

Not updating to 1.19.1 because the only fix doesn't impact Arch.

I modified the PKGBUILD to build the latest version (1.19). The prefetch patch is no longer needed.

PKGBUILD patch here:

Patch for obnam to workaround this:

Reported upstream on the obnam-dev mailing list, hopefully my fix or another will be in 1.18.2.

Heads-up: paramiko-1.16.0 appears to break this pacakge.

I upgraded: python2-paramiko (1.15.3-1 -> 1.16.0-1)

And now obnam's sftp lib crashes:

Could you please add 'armv7h' to arch().
Works good here on my archarmlinux
