I just fixed the PKGBUILD to point to the new repo location. I changed the 'mercurial-hg' dependency to 'mercurial' as well, now that the mercurial package supports Python3.

Thanks @micwoj92 for the heads up.

Bitbucket no longer hosts mercurial repositories, could you update this package?

Hi @dvalter, this was fixed upstream a few hours from your post, and this package is working again as I write this comment. Thanks for the heads up anyway.

Package is currently non-functional due to mercurial-hg is now 5.3.x, but tortoisehg works with 5.1.x-5.2.x

@Tharbad it's done, thanks. Sorry for the late update.

Please update the PKGBUILD dependencies to reflect the mercurial-hg change. It just asked me to install the official mercurial package...

I just updated the package recipe to python 3.

Please note that is now depends on mercurial-hg (, and not the official mercurial package (

Thanks @chrisjbillington for the proposed PKGBUILD update.

I suggest we migrate this package to python 3 as soon as the mercurial-hg package is fixed. However, the few tests I did with the current TortoiseHg with Python 3 showed that there is still some work to do to complete the migration. Many things still crash. But an unstable application would be far better than no application at all, and at least we'll all be able to experience these issues and help fixing them.

@Liso, both AUR packages recently became non-functional due to the removal of python2 related dependencies from the Arch repos. There is no stable release of tortoisehg working with Python 3 yet, so the tortoisehg package has updated to use an unreleased version. This package hasn't updated to deal with the situation yet, which is understandable, as it's an ongoing kerfuffle on tortoisehg didn't work with Python 3 at all until very recently.

An updated PKGBUILD I've been using, based on this one, but updated for Python 3 can be found here:

In either case, running tortoisehg with Python 3 requires mercurial be installed with Python 3 - which is not in the repos yet, and the latest commit installed by the mercurial-hg package is broken at the moment (and you probably don't want a dev version of hg anyway). So anyone wanting mercurial with Python 3 would do best to modify the PKGBUILD of mercurial-hg to install the stable 5.2 release instead of the latest commit.

Is it correct that depends on python and this one depends on python2 ?
