@MarsSeed, thanks! I've found a solution to completely remove the typing dependency, I have just missed the requirement entry in (that's why python2 -m pytest used to work whereas pytest2 didn't). Now this was fixed (I've just patched instead of adding "typing" as another dependency), and the python2-bcrypt checking worked here with this new release =)

Formerly, pathlib2 just imported typing to create two private objects _T and _P to do nothing with them, these were just for static checking with # type: comments, so I removed the import and the two useless objects, but if anything goes wrong because of the typing removal, just let me know.

After installing python2-typing, checking python2-bcrypt runs successfully. :)

python2-typing is required: pathlib2/requirements.txt.

Otherwise this happens when trying to use python2-pytest during the check() of python2-bcrypt:
