@sl1pkn07 After checking what these binaries do, it seems that these binaries are just helper scripts to download/remove the binary dependencies: avbin, ffmpeg. These two dependencies are already listed in the optdepends. If one wants to use the binaries provided by imageio, one can install imageio via pip install --user (or install it in virtualenv) and download these dependencies instead of using this package.

So, I am going to remove them in PKGBUILD. What do you think?

@Francois_B do you mind updating this package to 2.4.1 I wouldn't mind comaintaining this package.

To update to 2.3.0, update the version number and replace .zip with .tar.gz in the source URL.

Put freeimage as a dependence.

anntzer commented on 2016-04-27 07:29

Also, I'd probably make ffmpeg and avbin dependencies too (just like freeimage) and set IMAEGIO_FFMPEG_EXE and IMAGEIO_AVBIN_LIB accordingly via an entry in /etc/profile.d (

Perhaps it would make sense to build the library with freeimage, rather than relying on a download at runtime?
