DO NOT DO what the packages tells you about adding the bb python module's path to your PYTHONPATH variable. This will break so much on you system... Doing so means that python will use that directory to search for modules first, and it contains a file, so from that point on, python -m build will not work anymore and you won't be able to build anymore python packages... Could you provide the reason for asking the user to do such a thing ? Especially since the python modules is installed as it should, where it should and I see nowhere in the documentation anything about changing the PYTHONPATH.

EDIT: looking at the comment history of this PKGBUILD it seems that it was brought up at some point a few years back to fix something (??? the logs are gone so I don't know what). But I would argue it is still a very bad idea to just ask the user to do that without any warning or explanation

This bumps the package to 2.4.3 and fix the bitbake-server path error. This is not well tested at all but at least we can move forward a little bit on this one.

python-django18 This package seems disappear. Does python-django might be suitable?

The PKGBUILD will change your git config user and email to "Bitbake Tester". The maintainer has been notified about this but has not responded or updated the package.
