BTW I see that eudev and eudev-systemd were removed from provides=()

$ git show 73934ba2e660313bde6f191d3de7632a41db6cc5 PKGBUILD|grep provides
-  provides=("systemd-tools=$_sdver" "udev=$_sdver" "eudev" "eudev-systemd")
+  provides=("systemd-tools=$_pkgver" "udev=$_pkgver")
-  provides+=("$_pkgname=$_sdver")
+  provides+=("$_pkgname=$_pkgver-$_pkgrel")

I would have left it as it was, and even add libsystemd maybe. The
problem is that packages that require eudev can survive with notsystemd,
but as it is not in provides it breaks dependencies, so I'm forced to do
--assume-installed when installing it with pacman.
