** error loading plugin chroma:
Traceback (most recent call last):

ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'acoustid'
the current version already has py-pyacoustid in CHROMA_RUN_DEPENDS, are you experiencing this error in another way too?
Latest version still does not have a run-depend on pyacoustid:
$ pkg info --dependencies beets
So, the bug seems to still be present.
The problem with using CHROMA_RUN_DEPENDS is that the CHROMA port option is broken. It does not correctly unlink the chroma.py plugin from the beets application when the port option is disable. So with !CHROMA, beets still attempts to reference the missing acoustid via chroma.py.
I see I didn't hit this because I use that OPTION ON. I updated to the last version and I will remove the CHROMA OPTION and add pyacoustid to RUN_DEPENDS then.
