I have updated the PKGBUILD to force a rebuild with python 3.6.
Please note that some of the dependencies of hangups-git have not been bumped yet, so you may wish to manually rebuild them.
python-aiohttp will give you trouble since upstream still does not support wheels. You will have to modify the PKGBUILD to force a source rebuild.

I have updated the PKGBUILD to match the new upstream dependency policy.
However, this means the two of the dependencies have to update their packages for hangups to work again: python-aiohttp and python-multidict.
If you wish to updated these packages yourself in the meantime, just bump the package version to 1.2.0 and 2.1.4 respectively (and adjust the checksums) until the maintainers update their packages.

I have updated the PKGBUILD to match the latest upstream changes.
Note that in order for this the latest PKGBUILD to work, we need to wait for the maintainers of "python-aiohttp" and "python-mechanicalsoup" to update their packages too.
To ease the transition I have created an AUR package for the dep of python-aiohttp, but I can't update the packages from other maintainers (although the changes to the PKGBUILDs are simple enough if you really need hangups working now - just bump the $pkgver of the mentioned packages to 1.0.1 and 0.4.0 respectively and install [python-asyinc-timeout](

@Freso: Thanks, it make a lot more sense like this.
The downside was that this change required adding an "Epoch" marker. I don't like doing this, but it was the only solution. Anyway, the version was already such an ugly string, that adding an extra "1:" does not affect it that much.

Please switch to using a pkgver() function based on actual Git data, rather than a simple date based function. See

Word of caution - hangups-git now requires python-urwid >= 1.3.1, which is not in the official repos yet.
However, just downloading the PKGBUILD and updating the version number and md5sum will build the latest version and make hangups-git work again.

Anyone having trouble running hangups after the latest update, please rebuild:
python-protobuf (don't forget to do a chmod 644 /usr/lib/python3.5/site-packages/protobuf-3.0.0a3-py3.5.egg-info/* due to the broken permissions on python-protobuf package)

@jodizzle and @e8hffff:
You're welcome. Arch linux gives me so much, I have to give back in what manner I can. =-)

Fixed! Please test just to make sure I didn't miss anything.
Upstream fixed a couple of annoying dependency issues, so the sed lines were now interfering with it. I just removed (actually commented them out for now, just in case) them from the PKGBUILD.
Also I like the term "Illegal move". xD

PS - Technical note - the aforementioned sed lines were now removing indented code, which left the "if" statements effectively empty (and thus throwing errors).

@Stunts Thanks! I appreciate the work you've put into this.
