@MarcinWieczorek Thanks a lot, and merry xmas. Very subtle issue, I didn't even notice that.

Hello. Please rename the tarball to "${pkgname}-${pkgver}.tar.gz". Thank you and merry xmas!

@Svenstaro Thanks for your advice, fixed. The reason I use -git version is the older version of gdbgui needs python-flask newer than the package in community, and I have to package the -git version my own.

Requiring python-flask-git is not a good fix! The package should be patched if there is a problem here. A sed oneliner will be good enough. Please use python-flask instead as it's definitely compatible.

@muttleyxd OK, I'll change it to flask-git. that makes me confused.

Using python-flask-git fixes this - package version is equal to 0.13.dev0 and it works currently.

For me it seems like an issue with Python (version comparing) or Python-flask (poor versioning scheme).

@muttleyxd What? ... ok, I don't know much about python, and I'm going to wait for the author's reply.

Editing this file makes it work:

I just changed required version to >=0.11 and it runs - seems like 0.12.2.dev0 seems smaller than 0.12 to Python's version comparing method.

Seems like there is a missing dependency, but I'm not exactly sure what is happening.
