For reference; I got it working by installing `python-cleo-git` from AUR and `python-crashtest` 0.3.1-6 from the Archive, I also had to install `python-rapidfuzz` and `python-dulwich`.

I would personally consider `python-poetry 1.2` to be a bit too alpha for official linux distribution repositories, due to the fact that `python-poetry 1.2` depends on `python-cleo 1.0.0a5`, which we do not have (nor should, imo, since it's alpha).

We could revert `python-poetry 1.2` back to `python-poetry 1.1.15` using the following steps:

# Revert 1.2.0-2:
$ git revert a24c0c7a5b33075e689792b84e368e7d4b0311cb

# Revert 1.2.0-1:
$ git revert e15a24cf161e43bc9ece66fa50a72bad559e1019

# <Download PKGBUILD.diff> from this thread
$ git apply PKGBUILD.diff

This versioning would use an `epoch=1` to prioritize the new package version over any previous (including 1.2.0-1, 1.2.0-2). This comes with the pretty nasty side-effect that we would have to keep future package release epochs >= 1, but I'm not sure there's really any other way.

Seems this also comes with the issue of `python-poetry-core` used with `python-poetry`, as far as I'm seeing.

We opted for providing python-cleo 1.0.0a5 instead, as downgrading will eventually introduce even more compatibility issues with the other poetry dependencies (which are partly also used by other projects of course).
All required dependencies have been added, apart from poetry-plugin-export (which has been devendored), because it triggered a bug in python-build (see

In the hopes that poetry is now functional for daily use: Please report further issues also upstream and/or help upstream(s) to resolve the issues as to arrive at a more stable state again.
