Indeed it does the trick :)
I also updated the package to version 1.1 and switched to github for the source ( does not seems to work...).
With this version of the pep8 plugin there is a 'pep8_cmd' variable that I patched to use pycodestyle. This variable can also be overriden in .vimrc if required.

Note: this package is supposed to be deprecated in favor or vim-flake8 (which is not yet packaged in AUR)

You may want to replace calls to the `pep8` binary with calls to `pycodestyle` too. If you're not the upstream maintainer, maybe a `sed` command in the prepare() function will do the trick.

Fixed, thanks for the comment.

`pep8` has been removed from ArchLinux' official repositories and been replaced by `python-pycodestyle`.

Maybe when it was submitted the pep8 tool did not work under python3.
But since it does now I updated the package to use "pep8" instead of "pep8-python2" (and get rid of a patch).

I guess the name is now correct :)

Why does this package use a non-default python? python2-related packages should be named to indicate that, according to packaging guidelines.

Disowning, i am using vundle now.

Please, change from:
install -D -m644 pep8.vim ${_installpath}/plugin/pep8.vim || return 1
install -D -m644 pep8.vim ${_installpath}/ftplugin/python/pep8.vim || return 1

If you did it, the pep8 only will be loaded on python files.
