chardet and six are indirect dependencies required by aiohttp and dateutil, they are already listed there.
Wiki says: "Dependencies that are provided by other dependencies do not need to be listed."
But removing python makes sense because of that.

There’s no harm done about being a little bit more explicit than implicit about the build process of the package.
So I guess the call to build is ok.

Will add the ${} though. ;)

Thanks for your input!

Some considerations in your pkgbuild:

You have missing depends, the correct is:
depends=('python-six' 'python-dateutil' 'python-chardet' 'python-aiohttp'
'python-click' 'python-humanize')

Not necessary add python as depend cause is implied by "python-*" packages.

In source, use ${} in vars, is more "elegant".


You can remove all build section, not necesary cause "python install" do it.

And in package section, use ${} too:

package() {
cd ${pkgname}-${pkgver}
install -Dm644 LICENSE "${pkgdir}/usr/share/licenses/${pkgname}/LICENSE"
python install --root="${pkgdir}" --optimize='1'

Greetings ;)
