Updated PKGBUILD for 1.2 release:

pkgname=(python-$pkgbase python2-$pkgbase)

prepare() {
cp -r $_pkgname-${pkgver} py2-$_pkgname-${pkgver}

build() {
cd $srcdir/$_pkgname-${pkgver}
python build

cd $srcdir/py2-$_pkgname-${pkgver}
python2 build

package_python-paho-mqtt() {
pkgdesc="Python client library for MQTT v3.1 and v3.1.1"

cd $srcdir/$_pkgname-$pkgver
python install --root="$pkgdir" --optimize=1

package_python2-paho-mqtt() {
pkgdesc="Python 2 client library for MQTT v3.1 and v3.1.1"

cd $srcdir/py2-$_pkgname-$pkgver
python2 install --root="$pkgdir" --optimize=1
