I'd like to look into porting this package to Windows in: https://github.com/r-windows/rtools-packages

However one thing I noticed is that you use python2 which is currently being killed of everywhere. Is it possible to use python3 too?

It's not yet possible to depend on python 3. Depot tools still requires python 2, but I'm sure that it'll be only a question of weeks

OK thanks. Also, do you know if it is possible to build with gcc instead of clang? If you build this with clang on Arch, can R users link to the library if the R package is compiled with GCC?

Yes, this is what I do. I only build it with clang because the gcc build was once broken. Not sure about the current status

I tried to build it on windows but, as expected, I get stuck with python problems. Can you send a ping when depot_tools works on python3?
