This package no longer works (maybe since Python 3.8 ?) because there is a missing dependency on python-distlib.

Additional info:
* 4.8.4-4

Steps to reproduce:

$ sudo pacman -Rcn pyton-distlib # Only if it's already installed
$ mkvirtualenv test
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/bin/virtualenv", line 6, in <module>
from pkg_resources import load_entry_point
File "/usr/lib/python3.8/site-packages/pkg_resources/", line 3259, in <module>
def _initialize_master_working_set():
File "/usr/lib/python3.8/site-packages/pkg_resources/", line 3242, in _call_aside
f(*args, **kwargs)
File "/usr/lib/python3.8/site-packages/pkg_resources/", line 3271, in _initialize_master_working_set
working_set = WorkingSet._build_master()
File "/usr/lib/python3.8/site-packages/pkg_resources/", line 584, in _build_master
File "/usr/lib/python3.8/site-packages/pkg_resources/", line 901, in require
needed = self.resolve(parse_requirements(requirements))
File "/usr/lib/python3.8/site-packages/pkg_resources/", line 787, in resolve
raise DistributionNotFound(req, requirers)
pkg_resources.DistributionNotFound: The 'distlib<1,>=0.3.0' distribution was not found and is required by virtualenv

$ sudo pacman -S python-distlib
$ mkvirtualenv test

Additional suggestion:

Also add python2-distlib as an optional dependency for Python2 support.

Thanks a lot
