@RogerDuran/@dequis: While at it, please also review the Python package guidelines and the VCS guidelines:

@RogerDuran/@dequis: Please have a look at the Arch package guidelines (specifically the package etiquette):

  • All occurences of $srcdir and $pkgdir have to be quoted
  • Avoid using makepkg subroutines (e.g. msg): use printf or echo instead (or remove altogether, as install -v is sufficiently verbose)

Please also update the relevant depends, makedepends, checkdepends and optdepends (see community/qtile for further info).

In addition to python-dbus-next, python-xcffib is now an optional dependency (for X11 backend), as are python-xkbcommon, pywayland and pywroots (for Wayland backend).

Qtile now has python-dbus-next as an optional dependency for interaction with dbus (replacing python-dbus).

The Memory widget requires the psutil python module (or the python-psutil community package). Could this be added as a dependency?

Can we update this to use python3 instead of python2? Python2 is dead and there's no reason to not use python3 here since qtile fully supports it.

Hi there. If xcb-util-cursor isn't installed then the bar doesn't respect your cursor preferences.

python-setuptools doesn't seem necessary only for building, but also for running (try to uninstall it and restart qtile), I think it should be moved to depends.
