Hi there, I have two remarks that I noticed.

  1. meshio version is wrong.
In [1]: import meshio

In [2]: meshio.__version__
Out[2]: '5.0.0'
  1. I think that the following file located there

must be there over /opt/paraview/lib/paraview/plugins/ but this change will implies that paraview will be a hard dependency.

Partial solution below.

Thanks @carlosal1015, I've updated the package accordingly.

Hi @tpkessler, could you add python-setuptools as makedependency because is used.

requires = ["setuptools>=42", "wheel"]
build-backend = "setuptools.build_meta"

Thank you very much.

Thank you for your feedback @Imartinez-mirror. I adopted the build script to the new package guidelines. It's much simpler now. This also fixes the ownership problems.

@carlosal1015: It's seems like meshio will be split into several packages soon, see the comment on the discussion page,

meshio is not flagged-out of date, latest release is 5.3.4, not 7

Package could use a rewrite. From a clean chroot, nearly all files in the package are owned by the buildroot, and not by root itself. Arch devs recently updated the Python packaging guidelines; I recommend you check it out.

No more updates for meshio. There are two alternatives now (propietary) (propietary)

Thank you carlosal1015, I've updated the dependencies.
