@mirh I'm not sure what you mean about python 3.8?

Good idea about the separation. I don't think many people are using the python2-vdf version anyway. (I've orphaned that package.) This change also prevents checking both packages.

I'm happy for you to maintain python-vdf-git!

One week ago official support for python 3.8 landed.

Also, wouldn't it make sense to separate python-vdf and python2-vdf? It doesn't make sense to pull in the makedepends of one for the other.

EDIT: there's also a python-vdf-git package that somebody could revive..

@Ender Seems to be an issue with the version detection (at least when using pikaur). I removed the version requirement from protontricks PKGBUILD in order to continue.

@Ender python PKGBUILDs install to the currently-installed version of python during the build. You need to rebuild all AUR packages after a python (and perl) update, e.g. as per this

After getting "error pkg_resources.DistributionNotFound: The 'vdf>=2.4' distribution was not found and is required by protontricks" in protontricks package, I've tried to track down the issue and I've seen that this package targets to /usr/lib/python3.7/site-packages. Unfortunately, Arch already moved to python3.8. I've workaround the issue by symlinking the vdf folders into .../python3.8/site-packages but some kind of patch in the PKGBUILD would be nice. Thanks.

Thanks @Faalagorn. Fixed.

python2-setuptools is missing as a dependency for this

@fettouhi Yes, it seems so. I wanted to give them a week to respond to my previous comment. I've filed an orphan request now.

Seems like @Mr_Doge hasn't been active for some time now.

@Mr_Doge Upstream upgraded this to 3.1 just over a month ago. Could you please update the package? I'm happy to take over if you are uninterested in maintaining this package.
