/usr/lib/udev/rules.d/99-vmware-scsi-udev.rules has stuff in it which is unknown to udev.

In the logs, I get the following clutter:

udevd[1122]: unknown key 'BUS' in /usr/lib/udev/rules.d/99-vmware-scsi-udev.rules:12
udevd[1122]: invalid rule '/usr/lib/udev/rules.d/99-vmware-scsi-udev.rules:12'

Any probable future maintainer: Can you fix this, please?

Thanks for maintaining!

Dear possible future maintainer,

please add =${pkgver} to the provides=("open-vm-tools")-statement.

Thanks for maintaining!

I don't maintain this package anymore because I only used it for the Thinprint functionality, which is not included in the proprietary VMware tools since version 10.3.

If you are also interested by Thinprint, you can install open-vm-tools + vmware-thinprint packages.

Could you update the makedepends? The package vmware-component-extractor now has -git at the end
