Upstream changed the packaging and are now using poetry. Couldn't figure out how to package this and didn't have time and/or inclination to investigate this. If someone wants to take over this package or contribute on how to bump this, let me know.

Latest version is now 2019.1 – please update.

Thanks for that update!

Well, I am not entirely sure about the issue, either - but I guess the route you have taken is the correct one. About the community packages: Maybe they aren't using setuptools at all? Do you have an example for me, quite curious about this since I do quite a bit of python development myself.

I am using automated builds of my installed AUR packages in a very minimal and clean docker container, so I tripped over this - and on some other python packages I build lately.

@azmo: Thank you for your feedback. I think it makes sense, but I'm not entirely sure. Are there any packaging guidelines for Python packages that deal with this?

I found something in the Wiki, which probably means you are right [1]. On the other hand there are a lot of packages in community, which don't specify this is a dependency?

For now I've changed it according to your recommendation, hopefully it does not break anything else ;). I've also bumped to version to 2017.2.2.

Shouldn't there be a makedepends on python-setuptools and python2-setuptools? In a clean environment build fails with

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "", line 4, in <module>
from setuptools import setup, find_packages
ImportError: No module named setuptools
