This is a very interesting tool. It's also a healthy perl and python project with several releases every year. It really deserves an AUR presence.

However, as of December 2021, it's PKGBUILD it's totally outdated and abandoned.

The last update to this PKGBUILD was in 2019, version 1.19. The current version is from December 2021, version 1.32.

In addition, and more seriously, it tries to create and install obsolete files and folders, for python 2.7 and python 3.1, when the current Archlinux version is python 3.10.

$ pacman -Ql  vnlog  | grep --color=always -i usr.lib  -
vnlog /usr/lib/
vnlog /usr/lib/lib64/
vnlog /usr/lib/lib64/
vnlog /usr/lib/lib64/
vnlog /usr/lib/lib64/
vnlog /usr/lib/python2.7/
vnlog /usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/
vnlog /usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/
vnlog /usr/lib/python3.1/
vnlog /usr/lib/python3.1/site-packages/
vnlog /usr/lib/python3.1/site-packages/

I therefore recommend that this PKGBUILD should be removed from the AUR, should there be no one willing to show up and to maintain it.
