Flask-Compress added brotli compression support in version 1.5.0 (see <>, <>) and added brotli to its required dependencies in that same version. The Arch package doesn't have python-brotli in its dependencies, so python-flask-compress doesn't work and crashes with an import error unless python-brotli is explicitly installed.

Steps to reproduce:

$ python3 -c 'import flask_compress'
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "<string>", line 1, in <module>
File "/usr/lib/python3.8/site-packages/", line 13, in <module>
import brotli
ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'brotli'
