*Please* remove python-setuptools dependency, it is certifiably pointless.

After building the package, when I try to install it with pacman, I get the errors below. Any idea what is wrong?

The development is done on pypi now and the new packages are also on pypi. Here is an updated PKGBUILD:

As it is currently packaged this package additionally requires python2-setuptools and python-setuptools

lb.laboon commented on 2014-11-26 15:03

Why shouldn't python-setuptools be a make dependency? I can't build this package unless python-setuptools is installed.

And sorry for marking out-of-date, that was a mistake, and I can't figure out how to take it back...

python2-argparse shouldn't depend on python and python-setuptools, as this forces a full python 3 install for those two deps.
