[SOLVED] Missing package () function for PyTyle2

Hi, I was trying to install this tarball from the AUR: https://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=42541

But it prompts the following error:

==> ERROR: Missing package() function in /home/kolt/AUR/pytyle2-hg/PKGBUILD

I've read the PKGBUILD and have no idea why this is happening. I already installed the dependencies needed.

Any clue?

Replace "build ()" with "package ()"

The PKGBUILD is using an obsolete format.

It also hasn't been updated in over two years so it may not build at all even with this change.

Read the pacman output, it refers to the package() function and makepkg doesn't find it in the PKGBUILD as said. Ask the maintainer to update or orphan it, if he doesn't respond file an AUR request.

Thank you both, I'm going to try and contact the mantainer. I'm also going to look for alternatives to this software.
