Hi there, I'm not sure if the PKGBUILD will be accepted in AUR. I had once posted a thread in open-source contributions in arch formus, but was taken down due to legal issues (end of the day, TPB is illegal :P). So I didn't put effort in building PKGBUILD. That's the ONLY reason I posted about it here.
As far as I know, thepiratebay.org by itself is not illegal, only much but not all of the _linked_ content. As an example, you can most likely find a torrent-link for an Arch ISO.
Probably worth noting that this defense breaks down when the project README specifically calls out high-profile illegal content as usage examples, though. :p
Although the AUR *still* has that torrent client which is specifically designed to stream pirated movies via torrents, so I dunno.
(I honestly thought that that was deleted, but I just checked and it's still listed in the AUR!)
