News draft - https://bugs.archlinux.org/task/61329

The hplip package prior to version 3.20.3-2 was missing the compiled
python modules. This has been fixed in 3.20.3-2, so the upgrade will
need to overwrite the untracked pyc files created. If you get errors
like these

hplip: /usr/share/hplip/base/__pycache__/__init__.cpython-38.pyc exists
in filesystem hplip:
/usr/share/hplip/base/__pycache__/avahi.cpython-38.pyc exists in
filesystem hplip:
/usr/share/hplip/base/__pycache__/codes.cpython-38.pyc exists in
filesystem ...many more...

when updating, use

    pacman -Suy --overwrite /usr/share/hplip/\*

to perform the upgrade.
