@kozaki Cannot reproduce here, but since it's about networking it's probably something with your network.

yt-dlp-git compilation fails for a few months here: 'TestHTTPRequestHandler.test_gzip_trailing_garbage[Urllib]' with 'ConnectionRefusedError: [Errno 111] Connection refused' and 'yt_dlp.networking.exceptions.TransportError: [Errno 111] Connection refused'.
Using Python-3.11.5. Upstream (as in github/yt-dlp) binary works.

If the long build times annoy you, you can always run makepkg with --nocheck. Don't recommend it - have run into broken builds in other packages before (eg pandoc-crossref sometimes takes a while to adapt to pandoc changes)

@CompWizard With that logic, no package should have check(), since obviously the developer has already tested the commits. (or not)

CompWizard commented on 2023-09-12 22:09 (UTC)

Shouldn't the tests be disabled? They just slow down building for nothing. I suppose, all commits, pushed to github, are already tested.

@ruro I'd appreciate it, I do try to stay as close as possible to the repo packages for my -git packages. Plus if I am truly doing something super duper wrong, the package that most people use should probably be targeted first.

I am also just in general against forcing dependencies upon people, but I am not impossible to persuade.

@katt ah, sorry, by "upstream" I meant I kind of forgot that the non-git version of yt-dlp is available in the ABS. I can report the issue there, if you want, if you treat them as a reference point.

@ruro I actually don't see a single ticket being opened (or closed) for yt-dlp on, which is where I meant for you to steer your complaints.

ruro commented on 2023-07-30 10:56 (UTC)

@katt just to be clear, the issue was already raised upstream and the official answer was that 1) they don't "recommend" installing the package without its "optional" dependencies and 2) if downstream distributors insist on providing a "dependency-free" install, they should patch out the missing dependencies from requirements.txt or install_requires in

Currently, pip check CORRECTLY complains about the missing dependencies that are currently declared as non-optional in the installed python package metadata. Either these packages should be installed, or they should be removed from the python metadata. Your lack of care is somewhat understandable, but I think that "well, it works for me" isn't a very productive attitude to have for package maintainers.

@ruro You should report this to the package in the repos if you really think it's a problem.

Also as to what pip check complains about I couldn't possibly care less about. The application works perfectly without them installed (aside for the optional parts, of course).
