If you get a no-name pgp key error, try:

gpg --keyserver --recv-keys E3FF2839C048B25C084DEBE9B26995E310250568

I'm noticing the same issue, where python3.8-config is a broken symlink:

/usr/bin/python3.8-config -> python3.8m-config

Maybe the ln -s commands are wrong or something? I'm not really familiar with the build process, but maybe the PKGBUILD should have

ln -sf python-config "${pkgdir}/usr/bin/python${_pybasever}-config"

instead? I tested in Docker and it seems that the build artifact is just called python-config

The decimal module seems to build well for me – but if you want to add the patch to this build, feel free to do so:

If you want pip3.8 to be available, try running python3.8 -m ensurepip after install.

The _decimal module needs the same patch as for the Python 3.9 package to build successfully:

I still see a broken symlink to

lrwxrwxrwx 1 user user 22 Jan 25 18:31 ./lib/python3.8/config-3.8-x86_64-linux-gnu/ -> ../../

pip3.8 should be included in this package if I recall correctly.

How do I access pip?

I tried python3.8 -m pip but it just says /usr/bin/python3.8: No module named pip

edit: Turns out python3.8 -m venv works, and the virtualenv comes with pip. Would have liked to not need an environment though.

@max-k python3.8 --version showed 3.9.0 today for me too, and I was wondering. But I realized I was in a venv which I created back when python was python3.8.
