I needed to install the python-ewmh package.
Might need to add this as a dependency.

just rebuilding python-ewmh worked for me.

@manuelschneid3r This is the normal "build". I'll try to make logging configurable (as a feature) when I get a chance.

Is this a debug build or is the application printing that much info by default? caffeine pollutes the journalctl

@punk0x29a Please read the pinned post.

pkg_resources.DistributionNotFound: The 'caffeine-ng==3.3.8' distribution was not found and is required by the application
That's what I get now. Previously I fixed the problem by editing requirements, but now that's something different ( I guess...)

Ok, I got the point. In my case it was enough to rebuild caffeine-ng to make it work again. On another system I had to rebuild a dependency (ewmh) as well. In the latter case indeed rebuilding caffeine-ng wouldn't help, in the former it would.

The setups in question have python pckages pointing to an absent python, and not accesible by the default python.
You might not want to call them broken (it's semantics and poorly relevant), but the rest of the point stands; pushing the pkgrel won't rebuild dependencies. Users should have rebuilt python packages during the python36 update. TBH, I think this should have been an Arch announcement, since it affected too many users/packages.

I've just pinned that comment helping them do that because it's relevant here, but there's no way to push a fix to affected users.

What do you mean by "broken setups"? I don't consider my setup broken. :) Isn't a rebuild required for everybody after python is updated?

Concerning the warning: What does

grep -R "$(pwd)/src" pkg/

return if you run in the build directory?

> WARNING: Package contains reference to $srcdir.

Not sure how to deal with that. Any hints?
