In my case it doesn't compile because the PYTHONHOME variable isn't declared. So to fix this I have to modify the PKGBUILD file by adding that declaration in the prepare() section as such:

prepare() {

  export PYTHONHOME=/usr

  cd "pycairo-$pkgver"
  sed -i 's/raise.*Python 2.*$/pass/'

Not sure if that is something you would like to add... More an FYI for those who may have the same issue. Thx !

Hello, git is not needed as makedepends

The change log in tells the latest version to support Python 2 was v1.18.2. However,

git diff v1.18.2..v1.19.0

Shows that only a few things changed, including docs, a typeshed fix for Context.set_dash (+ a test for this), a Windows NT DLL hack for Python 3.8+, and an explicit removal of Python 2 support (in and docs, not in the library contents). And:

git diff v1.19.0..v1.19.1

Shows only changes explicitly for Python 3 (with a version check) and PyPy happened. And:

git diff v1.19.1..v1.20.0

Removes many Python version checks, so this is the first version to truly assume Python 3.

So, yes, v1.19.1 is compatible with Python 2, but this required a small tweak to bypass a check in That said, I've just upgraded this package to v1.19.1.
