What does it mean "necessary"?

I am sure that the Python Foundation did not test this specific Python release with the current tools available in Arch Linux repos.

Yes, this can be avoided, it is entirely up to the user to skip or not to skip check(). Please familiarize yourself with makepkg and do not repeat what has already been said countless times in these comments. Thanks!

Is it necessary to run all tests on build? Is it not strong enough of an assurance that when the Python Foundation tags a version, they probably made sure that the CI passes on green by now? The update build time taxation is huge and can be avoided IMO. Thanks!

@TheJackOfClubs If you need a precompiled package, that would be python2-bin. -bin (generally) indicates a precompiled binary.

ok, so the really long build time is unnecessary? thanks

AUR allows precompiled packages.

it took 38m 26s to update just python2 because of those tests. its packages like this that makes me wish aur allowed precompiled packages.

Are these mflags permanent, as in when updating the package they are applied? or not

yay -S python2 --mflags "--nocheck"

If they are not, is there any config file to assign mflags to a package directly?

Build freeze and stay 2 hours on last string with a significant load on the CPU.
