> BTW, it looks like this PKGBUILD works normally for this package, but in general calling setup.py with python3 interpreter assuming python2 build [1] is bad idea. Also it looks like the package has several licenses, e.g. winmenu.py header says WTFPL-v2 :)
Thanks, I've updated the build step and LICENSES. [2]

Note that I installed the license to /usr/share/licenses/python-i3-py,
as python-i3-py is the common pkgbase. The PKGBUILD guidelines [3]
however mention to use pkgname - and namcap issues a warning
accordingly. Do these guidelines account for split packages?
