On my system this conflicts with an already-existing file that contains 623 lines. In comparison, the file provided by notmuch contains only the following two lines.

I'm also encountering this bug when updating notmuch (and notmuch-runtime) from 0.23.5 to 0.24.1.

I added a rm to the PKGBUILD and could build the packages using that PKGBUILD in a clean chroot.

Two other problems:
- notmuch-vim and notmuch-mutt should be arch=('any')
- byte compilation does not work together with upcoming emacs 26 (upstream isue). with the emacs from the repos all is fine.

It doesn't matter what the mimeinfo.cache file in the notmuch package actually contains, it will be rebuilt right after installation with the update-desktop-database pacman hook. That is assuming you have the desktop-file-utils package installed as notmuch does not explicitly depend on it...

Ah good point. However, there's still the problem of the conflicting file in the first place.
