PSA: Like most of the PKGBUILDs that I (co-)maintain, I host prebuilt packages for this in my user repository and all its dependencies for those who wish to install it using pacman without messing around with building from the AUR. Issues or contributions are welcome either in comments below or via this GitHub repository.

After specifically saying "I'm happy to apply patches that fix specific issues" I see you just updated a package I sent patches for with your own commits, so I'm not sending patches again unless you actually want them.

This package is broken as well, it does not build cleanly using makechrootpkg. At the very least python-compreffor is missing from checkdepends.

@txtsd you need to reinstall python-fontmake.

This version of fontmake should explicitly require python-ufo2ft>=2.19.1. For roughly 2/3 of the font projects I've tried it works okay with the lower version currently in AUR, but for some projects (specifically ones with CFF outlines with some specific feature?) it makes API‌ calls that are new. Because the current AUR package is held back due to needing newer python-fonttools (that Arch is being really slow to update in [community], I've added a python-ufo2ft-git package that can satisfy the dependency until the stable package is updated.

I realize this is kind of blocked because the Arch [community] package for ptyhon-fonttools is out of date (flagged for over a month). I've been blocked by this so I've actually posted a python-fonttools-git package to the AUR which provides python-fonttools and can substitute for it. I would suggest updating this package with the dependency minimum version set explicitly. That way people won't accidentally update before the system package updates, but they can get this (and a lot of other things) freshened up if they want to install that AUR package.

Build fontmake without https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/python-ufo2ft/ (got build error, see comment)
