m040601 [1] filed a deletion request for tridactyl-native-git [2]:

This PKGBUILD hasnt been touched since 2019.

It is now completely obsolete.

Since, Release 1.21.0 / 2021-02-22, this "native" piece needed for the
Firefox tridactyl addon has changed. (Ref 1)

It is no longer written in Python but in Nim.
There is another "-git" PKGBUILD that takes care of this,

As such this PKGBUILD is completely obsolete, requires Python, and
only confuses users.

(Ref 1) https://tridactyl.xyz/newsletters/06-winter-2021/#native-
The native messenger is now written in Nim and is much faster
(especially noticeable on :editor). You may need to run :nativeupate
to update it - the latest :native version is 0.2.5
