I have adopted the package and applied the patch submitted by @sviro as I wanted to have the package fixed, but if anyone is willing to keep the package maintained, let me know and I disown.

I no longer use Revelation or have interest in maintaining this package, so I've orphaned it.

Hi, build is broken because of removed dependency pycrypto. This dependency needs to be changed to 'python2-crypto'.

Because of the dependency change, there needs to be done some code changes as well.

I have posted these changes as crypto.patch at

sha256sum of that patch should be 6ed410e83810a6cb44ac0e4828ba686fe8ee1a9a7743d7240dcdc038ad15927c

@snark.real: Thanks! I've fixed that specific issue, so it should build again. On closer inspection, though, it looks like upstream's dependency list is quite out-of-date, so I wouldn't be surprised if there were more dependency issues lurking in this package. namcap is also complaining about some python2/python3 issues. If you or anyone else wants to take over maintenance of this package, just let me know and I'll orphan it; otherwise, I'll fix issues as they crop up, but I don't really have the time to dig through the source and fix issues proactively right now.

Build is broken because of gnome dependency, but one can be safely removed from configure.

I have posted new version of the cracklib.patch at
New sha256sum of that patch is a56dad740c5bf2279df70190fb62f2c8b008096a96d6f1f5262c5884cf1eef0e

Dependency is back again:

We should be good to go for compiling revelation again.

Sorry for the trouble,

Dependency python2-crack does not seem to be in AUR any longer, nor is it in packages.

Thanks, chdorb. Don't know how I missed that.

Please split your build() fonction into build() and package() fonctions.

Is it necessary to have gnome-python as a dependency? It installs a lot that isnt needed.

this url shows the only dependencies should be
Gtk+ 2.8 , GLib 2.16 , Python 2.3 , PyGTK+ 2.8 , dbus
