Upstream raised their version to 1.0.0. So I'll do the 2 things together and provide a python2-posix_ipc (if nobody else did it before).

You can probably pretty easily modify this PKGBUILD and submit it to the AUR yourself to get this.

I want the python2 library
Please make "python2-posix_ipc".

Ok, disowned.

I'd like to maintain it.

I've just updated the package, seems to work for me. I don't actually use this package really anymore, if you (or anyone else) is interested in maintaining it, let me know.

This package doesn't work.
I suggest doing it in a similar way is in python-sysv-ipc.
Since the source obviously comes from the same developer but the PKGBUILDs
are maintained by different contributors the PKGBUILDs differ.
The PKGBUILD would look as follows :
pkgdesc="POSIX IPC primitives (semaphores, shared memory and message queues) for Python"

package() {
cd "$srcdir/posix_ipc-$pkgver"
python install --root="$pkgdir/" --optimize=1
What's not working in the current package is when the user issues
makepkg -s
as non-root user the directory pkg is created without permissions causing a failure.
Thus the standard procedure in creating a package will fail, e.g.
makepkg -s [user]
pacman -U <package> [as root]

Anyway maintaining this package similar to the one python-sysv-ipc
would be appropriate.
