iwyu 0.17 is released for Clang v13, but I am getting a build error:

make: make: Permission denied
make: *** [Makefile:146: all] Error 127

I did open a case in upstream:

Edit: Package updated. As a workaround, I changed CMake to generate Ninja. Maybe is a CMake bug

Clang 13 is out

Wait for the maintainer to bump the clang dependency.

I was able to build the tool with the latest master and clang 11 as suggested here with this PKGBUILD by just bumping the _max to _clang_major+2.

Clang 10 is out, so this package is now out of date. Hopefully the maintainer updates the package soon.

Checking the git history, the Python 2 requirement has been baked in since the initial commit. As best I can determine, the iwyu codebase has since been updated and is expected to be entirely Python 3 clean.

Could you try removing the sed lines and python2 dependency from this PKGBUILD and see if everything just works for you? (I built it myself and it seems fine.) We can report any problems we find with the Python 3 support upstream.

Looking forward for the update, thank you :)

@a216: Done. Thanks!

This project doesn't seem to show up in a search for "iwyu" - could this term be added as a keyword?
