Ok, it brokes your system... because your PKGBUILD use different path
and users. Nothing related to upstream ;)

Thanks !

Mainly because I have started my package a long time ago, even before
the first release of opensmtpd.
I looked all openstmpd PKGBUILD into AUR and I took what I found interesting.

Send me (off list) your PKGBUILD if you want more detailed comments.

*I* think we (as a TU/Dev community) could improve our enrollment
process to allow more skilled people to be involved into packaging and
distro improvement.
You have all my encouragements to find free time to be more involved
member of our growing community.
