Please remove the unneeded Python3 dependency python-lxml.

The lxml module would only be needed for the docbook test, but there is no testing done in this PKGBUILD.

Thank you in advance.

@MarsSeed The namcap reports that perl and ruby are required by the following installed scripts, however, it seems that java-runtime>=9 is no longer required during the build (thank you, it is updated now):

programs ['perl'] needed in scripts ['usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/SCons/Tool/docbook/docbook-xsl-1.76.1/fo/pdf2index']
programs ['ruby'] needed in scripts ['usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/SCons/Tool/docbook/docbook-xsl-1.76.1/epub/bin/dbtoepub']

Where the heck did you get that it needs perl and ruby as depends, and java-runtime as makedepends?

Do you see them anywhere in repo's last p2-py3 split package PKGBUILD? :O

@MarsSeed this package is a lite version of python2-scons and there is no independent package for the documentation part yet, hence, I think the python2-scons should be preserved as the main package (at least until a "scons2-doc" package is contributed).

MarsSeed commented on 2022-06-30 11:29 (UTC)

Oh, btw, do you still need makedepends like texlive-bin or texlive-latexextra, used for documentation creation?

Also, graphviz is not mentioned anywhere in source code (and I would think this also could have been used only for documentation-related graph preparation).

And ghostscript is only mentioned as a 'testing package' - though it is a PDF creation utility so I would again think: documentation-related.

Thanks for maintaining this package! Cheers.

Thanks for the fix.

There is a duplicate of this package, python2-scons. What would you consider to be the best way to address that?

It seems that package's maintainer is making commendable efforts, just like you, to keep their packages in working order. Though they have remarked recently that they are busy helping refugees from the Ukrainian crisis so they might not be able to respond quickly.

As for now, your package here is in working order, but python2-scons is unfortunately not.

I would think at this point it would be better to merge that package to this one.

Would you consider that appropriate?

(I am asking basically the same question from @bartus, the other package's maintainer.)
