The package author and I made some updates after you comments.
about checksums: - I changed it for 'SKIP' rule
about version number: - version tag has been added to original repository - and the PKGBUILD grabs it
about the name: - I added the '-git' suffix - I updated the group name as well
about variables: - $srcdir and $pkgdir are now embed in quoted strings
about licence: - it has been added to the source repository
Is that good enough to fit AUR quality?

I just realized my first PKGBUILD for gopro tool which is available here for now: https://github.com/mickro/gopro-tools-arch-package
Gopro tools are made by https://github.com/KonradIT. That gives some

I'm asking here for a PKGBUILD review, as suggested on https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Arch_User_
You're downloading the source directly from master, which means this package will fail the integrity checksums as soon as there is any sort of update.
Where do you even get a version number from? The source repository has no tags... if it did have a tag, you could download the tagged release! Therefore, this should be a *-git package, and you should download the repository as a whole via git, then use the pkgver function from https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/VCS_package_guidelines
$srcdir and $pkgdir are not quoted. What do you think will happen if I try building this package from "$HOME/aur packages/gopro-tools/"?
Your PKGBUILD claims the package is licensed under the GPL3 but I cannot find any trace of a license in the upstream repository.
