@Storm You're right! Thanks, I added it.

Seems like it's also missing a dep to "more-itertools" (available in community).

@PhCl Please add git as a makedepends.

As there is no official release, I changed it now to the last Git tag (master from Dec 15 2019), so Python 2 support is no longer needed. If there is a new release, that hack should be reverted.

In my quick test, the master version works but I cannot claim that I tested all paths.

@m040601, ok. You might start with a list of needed minimal features...

Thanks for your work and attention to this issue.

.......QUOTE: although personally I would prefer an official release......

Yes, I also agree. Went to the stapler github repo, and on a second thought, not yet 100% convinced of that project ability to release. Let's wait.

......QUOTE:it would make sense to have a list of features that really are needed as a minimal replacement for stapler (or pdftk)........

Could not agree more with you. A solid and reliable pdf tool that does this job is a must.

...... QUOTE: I started writing some pdf-tools for myself a while ago,....I might put them on github or so.....

Please do. I'd be happy to provide feedback help with docs etc... (no dev skills)

By the way, apropos PDF tooling, theres the Talk page,,_PS_and_DjVu on the excelent Arch Wiki PDF et al tools overview page

@m040601: oh, relly, they did it? Stapler undead?

In my eyes, the stapler-project is dead. Tried to contact the developer regarding some issues, and the release-numbering was one of the issues. Since months no answer. I started writing some pdf-tools for myself a while ago, nevertheless using stapler quite often. But maybe I will switch to my own tools completely one day. If other people would be interested, I might put them on github or so. But it would make sense to have a list of features that really are needed as a minimal replacement for stapler (or pdftk). At the moment I'm not sure what the current status of stapler is - which possibilities it offers, because I did not checked the current development version of it. Also the syntax of the commands maybe could be better. A Python3-release for Stapler is asked for by different peoples over months. So... a list of minimal commands might encourage me to write a new tool (or set of tools) for pdf-manipulation. Some kind of task-list for the Xmas holidays ;-)
