Zstd 1.5.5 is out could you please update your package ?

BigfootACA commented on 2022-09-19 05:42 (UTC)

@Dulbi sorry for later, this package was updated and removed python2

Dulbi commented on 2022-07-01 15:47 (UTC)

Could you please update the package and remove the python2 part ?

If you'd split the package (or deprecate the Python 2 version completely) you could have a PKGBUILD as simple as this:

pkgdesc="ZSTD Bindings for Python"


build() {
  cd "$pkgname-$pkgver"

  python build --external

check() {
  cd "$pkgname-$pkgver"

  python -m pytest

package() {
  cd "$pkgname-$pkgver"

  python install --root="$pkgdir" --optimize=1 --skip-build
  install -Dm644 LICENSE "$pkgdir/usr/share/licenses/$pkgname/LICENSE"

This would use Arch's zstd instead of the one packaged with the Python package (and git repo). This would come with some pros and cons but I think this is the most proper way of packaging for a rolling release distro.

@carsme i will remove python2 testing

Dulbi commented on 2022-01-03 10:44 (UTC)

I would also suggest splitting the package into 2: one for python3 and one for python2. Please also update to 1.5.1

+1, can you please split this package ?

carsme commented on 2022-01-02 12:21 (UTC)

The check stage depends on the broken package python2-pytest which in turn makes this package broken.

I suggest to either remove the Python 2 testing from the check stage or to split the Python 2 build to a completely separate package.

I could help you with this if you'd make me co-maintainer.

Hey, this package has been out-of-date for some time. Do you need help with the maintenance?
