For those anxious to get on 3.0.2 alpha releases I have updated the afdko-git package dependencies so it works with Python 3 now and is pretty much interchangeable with this stable release package.

I've overhauled the dependencies for this. Note that some of the dependencies want to install python-setuptools-scm, but in my testing those PKGBUILDS can be edited to substitute just python-setuptools and it works fine.

If anybody can confirm that python-lxml is indeed optional I can move that to optdepends. For now I made it a dependency.

@yochananmarqos I'm trying to integrate the dependency updates you and @loathingkernel have mentioned and have some questions. Why are you depending on python-setuptools-scm? If we're compiling stable versions (as this packages is meant to do) we shouldn't need that.

Also what's the deal with psautohint? Wasn't that part of this package?

Missing dependencies:

  • python-lxml (optional?)
  • python-cu2qu
  • psautohint (I added it to the AUR today)
  • python-ufoprocessor (I added it to the AUR today)

Covered by deps, not necessary:

  • python-fontmath (required by python-mutatormath)
  • python-defcon (required by python-cu2qu)
  • python-fonttools (required by python-cu2qu, python-mutatormath & psautohint)

python-wheel and python-setuptools-scm are required to build.

My updated PKGBUILD is using 3.0.2a5 for another project, but everything is the same.

This works for me if anyone wants to update it.

The latest update (3.0.1) is going to require a lot of packaging changes including of Python dependencies. The current package is the last one that supports Python2.

If anybody wants to help with this feel free! I'd be happy to patch if somebody gets it all together.

This no longer works, python2-defcon is missing.

@caleb your PKGBUILD looks good, I've added you as maintainer so you can push it.

I didn't have much time or need to update this, so I'll probably just leave it to you.

This package is 4 releases out of date and the upstream project has changed hosting and distribution channels and refactored the entire package to be a proper python package, obsoleting most of the hacks in this package. I have an updated PKGBUILD in my fork of this package. I would like to update this package here too. Would you be willing to add me as a maintainer or, if you don't want to also work on it, disown it entirely so I can adopt it?
