Description: python-aiohttp is not working since python-charset-normalizer is in version 3.0.0. There is a requirement of having version <3.0.

The error is:

pkg_resources.DistributionNotFound: The 'charset-normalizer<3.0,>=2.0' distribution was not found and is required by aiohttp

Relaxing the requirement seems OK (I did not do extensive testing).
This task depends upon

More details:

[python-aiohttp PKGBUILD]( build at commit `30b7a4e99677b4014dda2372504343bb05fc983e`

[setup.cfg at `30b7a4e99677b4014dda2372504343bb05fc983e`]( contains the line,

charset-normalizer >=2.0, < 3.0

This was raised to `< 4.0` [around 10/24](

[Package python-charset-normalizer]( is currently at 3.0.1 which is incompatible (bumped to 3.0.0 on 10/24)

Unfortunately, aiohttp did not bump the release version since 3.8.3 on 10/21 so using a fixed version isn't going to work.

Does applying the attached diff and rebuilding the package resolve the issue?

Yes it does for me.

When will this update land on official repos? I'm having hard time rebuilding the package myself - it is failing to tests/ for some reason.

I would love to have working version of this package asap.
