@elanglois: Thanks for the hint, added pkgconf to the makedepends, v7.0.1-1.

Thanks for the package! This should have a makedepends on pkgconf, see

Thinking about it, is there any reason to keep the python2 version around at all? (i.e. dropping it as advocated for by TUC) Python2 is EOL, already.

That is true for virtually all split-packages that are built locally. I haven’t seen any discussion on this either, not on the arch-dev-public mailing list nor on the wiki. I’m not sure whether splitting the package altogether is such a good idea, since it would create redundancy. When it comes to this particular PKGBUILD, I noticed that I had not declared the dependencies separately per-package. I changed that, but would want to sleep over it before splitting the package.

Maybe Python 2 support can just be dropped because no other AUR package depends on it.

This package currently depends on Python 2 even if one only installs the Python 3 version, which means python3 users will install python2 for no reason. It seems to me that even though one can specify separate depends for split packages, one can't specify separate makedepends, so even moving the depends into the package-*() functions would still pull in python 2 unnecessarily. This should probably just be split into two separate PKGBUILDs for py3 and py2 separately.
