The virt-manager PKGBUILD currently has "newt-syrup" listed in both the makedepends and in the depends array although it is completely unneeded for both building and running virt-manager/virt-install. Moreover, newt-syrup's upstream seems to be dead, since even after several months, the old website from was still not moved to another hosting platform.

I therefore suggest to drop the newt-sryup dependency from the virt-manager PKGBUILD, and either drop the newt-syup package completely or move it to AUR.
This task depends upon
