A while ago, basically all my Python-Fu plugins and scripts stopped working, and the Python-Fu sub-menu has disappeared. I thought I had done something wrong, but it turns out, python was just [disabled in the PKGBUILD](

A quick [blame]( leads to [this commit]( in the gitlab mirror, which corresponds to [this commit]( in svntogit.

Is there a reason for python to be disabled? Most of the plugins I use daily are written in python. so I'm probably just gonna have to build GIMP myself as a workaround.
This task depends upon

Sorry for the formatting, I couldn't find any resources for the markup languages that this bug tracker supports, so I just wrote the whole thing in markdown.
