Is it possible to install the shell completions to a system-wide install location?

@snowball: I understand your argument with new python releases an have added the install line now. Thanks for the patch! I don't think a additional install script is required though. Reloading of udev rules is handled automatically with a pacman hook: /usr/share/libalpm/hooks/30-systemd-udev-reload.hook and while being in uucp is necessary for serial port access it is not specific to this package, more a general system configuration thing.

To install the udev rules:

I prefer this over creating a symlink, as the symlink breaks whenever there's a new Python release.

@greyltc: Fixed upstream (for 5.0.1):

Hey, please don't put stuff in /usr/lib/python3.8/site-packages/tests

PIO 4.2 released, where the issue with marshmallow 3 should be fixed.

Still python-semantic-version got no update.

@TheAifam5: I have also sent Felix Yan a mail a few weeks ago, with updated semantic-version PKGBUILD and explanation that it does not break other packages. Same as you, did also not get any response... Don't quite know what to do now. Just push the update here with a notice that users have to fix this dependency themselves?

@Scrumplex: It is actually already in the package, you can create a link to make udev load them: ln -s /usr/lib/python3.8/site-packages/scripts/99-platformio-udev.rules /etc/udev/rules.d/

Fix is already on the master. Will come in next release, which will be marshmallow 3 compatible.

I tried to contact with the maintainer of the „python-semantic-version“. Even sent him PKGBUILD which may help him a little bit, but never got any response.

What about adding the platformio udev rules to this package?

Jake commented on 2019-12-26 18:11

@TheAifam5 @offlinehoster: Thanks for the help. The main problem is in my opinion still semantic_version, because it is in the official repos and not in the correct version... but making a AUR package just with a newer version seems wrong. I also tried applying the patch (2.6.0 > 2.8.1) in reverse, but there were other changes and it is not that easy. Otherwise we could fulfill the 4.1.0 dependencies now, here is the list from
