The package is unfortunately still broken, but it seems that the solution proposed by hyness still works (prepending a v to the tag on that github link). Please update?

Woops. I'll get that updated.

I got the following error when building

-> Creating working copy of python-pia git repo...
Cloning into 'python-pia'...
fatal: invalid reference: 3.4

I was able to fix it by prepending a vto the tag

Looks like they removed a bunch of configuration as well. Hmm, working out removing the other configuration options since they do not work.

Hmm, okay. I have some work to do. Apparently, PIA changed the file names and moves stuff around. Let me see how I want to work this out.

sorry, the comment I just made was actually for the dev version of this package, I'll cross post it there.

Seems even more broken than usual. So I got it working by changing the egrep line in the PKGBUILD to:

    host=$(grep -Po "(?<=remote )[-a-zA-Z.]+" "$file")

I also had to modify python-pia before a could call sudo pia -a. I had to change line 85 in pia/applications/ to :

        return [h.fqdn for h in properties.get_default_hosts_list() if == re.sub('_', ' ', config_id)][0]

(note the swapped '_' and ' ' there). That seems to have done the trick, but man was this a pain. Either way, vpn working again.

The changes to the PKGBUILD mean that the server list is now blank when it installs. This isn't a problem if I roll back a commit to before the PKGBUILD changed.
