Thank you!

Please at least remove the python-pycrypto optdepend.

Plus, I see you've created the python-tinyaes package on AUR. You can now add that as an optdepend here.

I see, thanks for the update, will change it up.

This should not depend on python-pycrypto. It's been deprecated since 2013.

Instead, pyinstaller optionally uses tinyaes, not yet available in Arch/AUR repos.

This is now automated and tracks PyPI releases. It should update to a new release within 24-48 hours of a new release on pypi.

Also reverted to PyPI instead of git, but using whl instead of source tars. They turn out to be easier to install, with fewer make dependencies (I understand there may be more downstream dependencies, but in my opinion, if you are working with pyinstaller, you probably already have pip) and faster install times. And I can also assume they will work on the platforms they were built for since that requirement is now pushed upstream.

If anyone has issues with the switch do let me know. It works fine in my testing so far. I also have a pyinstaller-git package that I maintain which builds from the latest source directly.

for anyone who finds this package lagging behind an official release, please try rebuilding the package.

This in particular follows github releases, as opposed to anything else, so it should be available to anyone immediately after a new release. :)

And feel free to tag out of date in the future as well if it was a week old like it was in this case. But I just wanted to let folks know that in-case they needed it sooner than I could get to it. (Still in the process of automating pyinstaller releases)

@nhrjr: I've commented out the PGP key verification since it's causing issues.

I don't know exactly, what @skrupellos was referring to, but it could be related to, where it is stated that the latest gpg version does not support keys without ID.

I also have the same problem as @SoleSoul and cannot import the key from It is possible to use pyinstaller-git though.

@skrupellos: You seem to be lost. Did you post in the wrong place?

@SoleSoul: There is no name or email attached to the key (see related issue), but that shouldn't stop you from adding it.
