I'm getting a build failure.

Looks like the source directory in the build() function is incorrect. It should be $srcdir/rtv instead of $srcdir/$pkgname-$pkgver.

@j3zz4h Not sure where to begin with this. I can't replicate this. But it might be an issue of what locale you have set seeing the unicode error. The packages are more or less helpers to install rtv. You might want to open an issue at the github page. And even try to install it from the other means listed there. You can also check this out, it's a similar error you seem to have, and basicly you need to setup your locale to en_US.utf8 (or whatever locale makes sense for you ofc) more info for that here:

Having an issue builing both rtv and rtv-git

==> Starting package()...

*** Setting the locale at "/etc/locale.conf" fixed this issue...

@Ranzpirat added. Sorry I didn't notice a new dependacy.

This needs python-tornado added to dependencies.

@Ville.Kovacs Not sure of the issue, but --unicode is experimental as far as I know. What happens when you simply run it with no arguments?
