@chaotic_bruno, ROS2 does not actually need sip4.

Even ROS1 Noetic AUR packages shouldn't require it, if @aczx would mind addig the official backported patches to the few relevant PKGBUILDs.

I think that the packages depending on sip4 should update their dependencies to clarify which sip version is needed by them. My workaround for now is to patch the conflicts attribute on each system where I need sip4. I'm working with ROS2 and the conflicts attribute regularly breaks automation.

@atheo Looks like a yaourt problem. The basename of the package is sip4. Use a different aur helper or try building in a clean chroot.

package is completely broken rn. while installing getting this:

$ yaourt -S python-sip4

==> Downloading python-sip4 PKGBUILD from AUR...
==> ERROR: python-sip4 not found in AUR.

This is not updating for me, I get:

With sip included in conflicts, users cannot have sip installed by pacman when we also need sip4. This prevents us from working on other SIP projects that uses the latest sip. Since sip4 is not updated by upstream anymore, I think it is better to remove sip from conflicts and other packages should update its dependencies to clearly define which one to use.

The other packages in which is unclear need to check and update then, with a quick look for several is pending a deletion request

Changing what this package provides could break other packages. Other packages have a dependency on sip but it's not quite clear which depend on sip4 or regular sip.

This package should not be labled as providing and conflicting with sip. sip provides totally different tool sets, like sip-build, sip-install. sip4 provides a single tool called sip. sip is installed to /usr/lib/python*/site-packges/sip-build while sip4 is installed to /usr/lib/python*/site-packages/{,,, sip.pyi}. They don't conflict each other at all.

Here is the candidate fix:
