This package is a backport of the refreshed and enhanced ConfigParser from later Python versions. To use the backport instead of the built-in version, simply import it explicitly as a backport.

Hey @drejeck, I think I just tried to summarize what it was from their own description. Happy to change it to be more accurate, what would you suggest?

Package description "backport of configparser from Python 3" seems wrong:

  • It is a Python 3 package, so it is not a backport from Python 3,
  • it misses the description of what it really is.

Thanks for maintaining!

Should be fixed now.

Hey @gustavo6046 and @rurkilafyi, sorry for missing this! I guess I have notifications off for this one! I've added you both as co-maintainers, feel free to fix it up before I can get around to it!

Hey fryfrog,

it would be nice if you could include the proposed patch from ZhangHua in this package, because currently the package fails to build. This is due to the missing file. The owner of the source code repository says, that the use of was discouraged for quite some time. See: In a corresponding issue, which was opened in the source code repo, the maintainer himself said that the proposed patch from ZhangHua is the correct fix. See:

This patch maybe helpful for someone want to build this package:

Package is still broken due to missing, I followed section 4.1 on to build, which worked and seems similar to what gyara proposed a while back, though probably less accurate solution.

Thank you for the hint tubajoe. It's been a while with this package failing for the missing file. I edited the build file to include the following wget command after the cd in the build and package functions. This will download the file into the source directory. Perhaps make a patch for this package fryfrog?

wget -nc

I have created a patch, using python-build as PEP 517 frontend to build this package, which can fix the build error.

Workaround for create from

In pacman, edit build-files and change path to both to the temporary path of the
