@LinuxLoverForeve Don't see any way to verify if that repository is official or not?

I'm currently taking the situation one day at a time and seeing what happens until I'm willing to even entertain the idea of using an unofficial mirror. Everyone is free to use the PKGBUILD with their preferred mirror for it until then with their own risk but I would just suggest using youtube-dl from the repos.

Broken because github got a DMCA takedown request.

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.
