Description Joonas Niilola gentoo-dev 2020-10-28 08:05:56 UTC
Hi, 

I see that upstream has already resolved this issue. Please see, 
  https://github.com/pazz/alot/pull/1511

Is it possible to patch our current versions of alot to work with notmuch2 python bindings, or perhaps package a snapshot under 0.9.1_p<date-when-last-buildable-commit-was-made>?

Yes that could be possible to backport the patch,
but due to the size of it I prefered to wait the next release to bump.

I have seen the refactoring of the new maintainer of notmuch,
so I guess the 'dropping the old python module' subject is back.

I understand the urgency, and I have reported to alot and afew,
so as the patches exist I will backport them in a bump.
