I still don't understand what is actually going on, but the issues with --check here are similar to what I just ran into with python-ufo2ft — the check function is actually trying to build something or other and wants an old version of fonttools.

Wow there IS something funky with this build. I can build this in a clean CHROOT but cannot on my host system! I think the test suite must be doing something really wonky looking for packages and adding tests if and only if the host system has extra things available. That's crazy pants but it's happening.

@thrasibule: Thanks for the add. I just normalized a few things following Arch's Python guidelines on the wiki and checked the build in a clean CHROOT.

@yochananmarqos I added you to the -git package, you probably mistook it for this one.

@andykluger I can't replicate your results needing fontmath or anything else not currently listed. I built the current iteration in a clean chroot starting with just base-devel plus the specified dependencies and it built fine. I'm wondering if those tests you are seeing failing are actually for building something else in the dependency chain.

Ah, but if I remove both ufolib packages, and install python-fontmath, then this installs just fine.

It seems to me python-fontmath is necessary, at least at build time, as long as the check remains.

This still fails for me in two places:

If I install python-ufolib, then it only fails in one place:

If I then additionally install python-ufolib2, it fails once:

If I then remove python-ufolib but keep python-ufolib2 installed, it fails once:

@thrasibuke: Apologies for the mix-up then. Thanks for updating it.

@yochananmarqos It is your imagination, I've never added you as a co-maintainer. There is zero functional change from 0.7.0 to 0.7.2. Taking 2 days to bump a package for a minor rev that fixes nothing is not the end of the world. @caleb I've added you as a co-maintainer. Thanks for the dependencies, I've updated that. I still think there is value in testing the package, and making sure it doesn't download extra dependencies in doing that, so I've kept the check.

@thrasibule: Was it my imagination or did you add @caleb and I as Co-Maintainers and then just as quickly remove us? Are you planning on maintaining the package or not?
