I can't update my system because of the following:

looking for conflicting packages...
:: python-hid and python-hidapi are in conflict. Remove python-hidapi? [y/N] y
error: failed to prepare transaction (could not satisfy dependencies)
:: removing python-hidapi breaks dependency 'python-hidapi' required by python-btchip

It looks like python-hid 1.0.4-3 is a new package which is meant to replace python-hidapi (?), but it does not provide python-hidapi and other packages (python-btchip 0.1.32-1, electrum, liquidctl, and of course some AUR packages) still depend on python-hidapi.
This task depends upon

Workaround in the meantime is to remove qmk

Hmmm, I don't think there is any good reason for these to be conflicting with each other. I don't see why they should, I added it as the AUR package had it but forgot checking if it was needed or not.
