Quick update: The rebuild is taking longer than expected, mainly
because some packages are failing their check() function.

One more thing to note (as an unlucky dev independently discovered today):

Some PKGBUILDs were modified in /trunk to use the Python 3.8
site-packages path (among other tweaks). Building those against Python
3.7 might fail or produce incorrect packages. The affected packages
are listed in the following two commits and care should be taken when
updating them while the Python rebuild is ongoing.
