Thanks, I get it. This definitely seems like something makepkg should detect and handle automatically Are the .AURINFO files here to stay?
Note that .AURINFO functionality will not be added to pacman/makepkg, unless the format is extended to work with split packages and all corner cases that we do not care about in the AUR.
The idea is to start with an external tool to post process source packages and then extend this tool, as well as the underlying .AURINFO format, until we get something that is suitable for integration with makepkg.
OK. I haven't tested this with split packages, but the attached patch works with a non-split one for those too lazy to manually make the modified src.tar.gz :p
No. .AURINFO is for the AUR, not for makepkg or pacman. There is no reason that this should be handled by pacman right now. `makepkg -S` is for making source tarballs, not AUR packages, that is just something that it also works with.
If you want .AURINFO in your source tarball, then add it to the source=() array. This was discussed three days ago on this same mailing list.
