Upstream says the script works with Python3. Is it time to move the package to python3 as well?

packages python2-texttable python2-tqdm do not exist

Hi alexmerry, oh, thank you very much. I don't have much experience with packages, but now you're showing it, it looks pretty simple and logically.

Anyway, at least for me, I found another solution, just "pip install rbtools". By the way, I'm actually not completely sure what is the definition of an "out-of-date" package here: "rbt --version" yields "RBTools 1.0.2" (installed through pip) and if this is "rbtools 1.0.2-1", I guess this is slightly newer (but not the newest). I don't know if the same minor version with a new patch released makes a package "out-of-date", but at least I think many users would prefer the PKGBUILD fix below, going from python2 to python3, which is the new "python-standard" to build packages on and it's important that packages are python3-supported, IMHO... Thanks for your help/feedback with the PKGBUILD.

I think the solution is to move the package to Python 3 - it's pretty straightforward to do:

 build() {
   cd "$srcdir/RBTools-$pkgver"

-  python2 build || return 1

Ok, so I get:

yay -S rbtools
==> Error: Could not find all required packages:
    python2-texttable (Wanted by: rbtools)

Any workaround? Is this abandoned (I hope not)?

pippin: sorry about that, next time I'll do it right. Thx :D

Portaloffreedom: you should flag the package out of date when it needs updating; that way, the comments don't fill up with things that quickly become irrelevant :-)

portaloffreedom commented on 2014-01-03 17:17

needs to update to 0.5.3

alexmerry commented on 2013-11-20 11:08

Fixed in 0.5.2-2
