No issues with the download; it's to avoid clobbering in ones SRCDEST (makepkg.conf option).

A bunch of good suggestions! Thanks.

I missed updating this package when I updated python-ansicolor. That's my fault. And I have no idea why I started this PKGREL at 0. Fixed it.

It already downloads correctly, so I don't see what the need is to add the filename for the source explicitly.

Also, thanks for the tip about --skip-build. Did not know about that.

Please also add --skip-build to python install to avoid rebuilding the Python package.

Please change the python-ansicolor version req. to >=0.2.4 to comply better with upstream's use of ~= 0.2.4, and allow one to upgrade their python-ansicolor package.

PS: Please also use a package-specific filename for the source, eg.: source=("vint-$pkgver.tar.gz::$url/archive/v$pkgver.tar.gz")

PPS: pkgrel's generally start at 1. :p

Same error:

curl: (22) The requested URL returned error: 404 Not Found
==> ERROR: Failure while downloading
==> ERROR: Makepkg was unable to build python-vint.

==> ERROR: Failure while downloading

The correct URL is:

(note missed "v" character before 0.3.14.tar.gz)

The issue with chardet was fixed upstream.
The package should be updated.

I installed this package and it was placed under python3 site-packages. Running it I get an error:
