As of systemd 223, the systemd Python bindings are no longer shipped as part of systemd, but are being maintained at instead. Currently, we don’t seem to have a package for these in extra or community. Maybe someone could package them, so that a dependency may be added to fail2ban. Without the bindings, fail2ban functionality is severely restricted, since most of the jails rely on the systemd backend.

Additional info:
* systemd 223-1
* fail2ban 0.9.2-1
This task depends upon

I am working on packaging of the new package for both of those.

compilation terminated.

This is the error that needs to be fixed, it is just mentioned in that pull request.

Still waiting for it to be fixed, or a new release of it to be tagged.

Until this is released upstream I created a -git aur package at:
As disabling fail2ban wasn't really an option on my server.
