No, I meant "How did you end up with a sip5 binary in the first place"? Arch only ships sip (which is at version 6.4) and sip4. None of them contain a sip5 file though. pacman -Qo /usr/bin/sip5 should tell you which package that file belongs to.

i had to symllink /usr/bin/sip5 to /usr/bin/sip in order to make this work...I'm not sure why this is calling the sip5 binary.

Still builds fine for me. How did you end up with sip5 though? This package requires sip4 for building.

The AUR sync bug is finally fixed and I've pushed python2-dbus.

LaughingMan commented on 2021-04-10 05:51

The problem is that the list of official packages doesn't get synced to the AUR, so it thinks that python2-dbus is still available as an official package and blocks my pushes. The relevant bug report is here:

dbus-python is just the python3 version and won't help.

There is now a dbus-python package in extra but makepkg still complains about missing python2-dbus when I have it installed. So thanks for posting the PKGBUILD here: that worked for me ! But should that be filed as a bug ? I am not familiar with doing that...
