python-socks and python2-socks in [Comunnity] as python-pysocks and python2-pysocks

I missed the previous comment, my mistake.
Now correctly depends on python instead of python2.

For naming, the package follows the, see "Package naming"

At the moment this looks like a Python 2 package, unless you study the package() function. Fixing the dependency is definitely needed; it wouldn’t hurt to mention Python 3 in the package name or description either.

I suggest you mention “Python” in the package name or description

Should depend on python, not python2.

This package is deprecated. Please use python-socks instead. Disowning.

Please consider switching the sources to an improved branch on google code: (source updated 2010 compared to 2006 with the bugs from fixed).

Here's a new PKGBUILD, it uses a little sed magic to determine your python version, but it seems to work well :)

Flagged out of date because it does not work with the python updates in [testing]. While not everyone uses testing, making it compatible with [testing] will not break compatibility for people that don't use it (the python package in [extra] provides python2, and python2 is symlinked to the correct executable).
