You don't. Partial updates are unsupported on Arch, so you can be sure
Arch linux users use Python 2.7 or 3.5.

Not sure if that makes much sense, and FWIW I've had some issues with
people not being able to install AUR packages with PGP keys. I don't
recall exactly what the problem was though...

You can remove empty variables ;)

You'd usually put an explanation when/why inkscape is needed here.

I don't think it makes sense to run pylint during check(). It tells
you nothing about if the package is working correctly or not.

No point in providing all of them - stick to one.

Why would it ever not exist?
