The community PKGBUILD has this line in prepare() for the correct fish completion path:
sed -i 's:etc/fish/completions:share/fish/completions:' setup.py

Since the PKGBUILD doesnt install the fish completion anyway, I assume that if you dont use the fish shell you can safely replace it with an empty path:
sed -i 's:etc/fish/completions::' setup.py

That should get rid of the empty folder.

The community PKGBUILD has this line in prepare() for the correct fish completion path:
sed -i 's|etc/fish/completions|share/fish/completions|' setup.py
though that just moves the empty folder to /usr/share/fish/completions

I assume that if you dont use the fish shell you can safely remove this from the setup.py by adding this to prepare() instead:
sed -i ':etc/fish/completions:d' setup.py

This package creates the empty folder /usr/etc/fish/completions .

Thanks, I've applied all the suggested changes.

This package could really use some TLC. For example, it's a python package, it's arch is 'any', not ('i686' 'x86_64'). Furthermore, the makefile provided upstream is terrible—you should seriously consider just using the standard python installation (like we do in the official package) instead of requiring zip as a makedepend.

All the best,

Thanks but youtube-dl works with python 3.

I've added a makedepends entry though.

Some fixes:
-makedepends=('git' 'zip' 'sed')
+makedepends=('python2' 'git' 'zip' 'sed')

in build():
+sed -i 's/python/python2/g' Makefile

Yeah, it's a shame that the dependence on pandoc makes it hard to use setup.py.
