python-isort was updated to 5.2.2 in testing, but pylint requires isort <5 (isort is now at 5.3.2).

Additional info:
* package versions: extra/pylint 2.5.3-1, testing/python-isort 5.2.2-1
* upstream issue:
* isort requirement in pylint:

Steps to reproduce:

Install python-isort from [testing] (or do a full upgrade in with [testing] enabled)
Start pylint

Terminal output:

$ pylint
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/lib/python3.8/site-packages/pkg_resources/", line 582, in _build_master
File "/usr/lib/python3.8/site-packages/pkg_resources/", line 899, in require

python-isort 5.2.2 is now in [extra], so pylint is presently broken on Arch.
