[aur-dev] [PATCH/RFC 0/6] Promote the use of .AURINFO

Check [1] for a related discussion on aur-general.

What this patch series basically does is:

* Tell people to use `mkaurball` (which adds .AURINFO after building)
  instead of `makepkg --source`.

* Show a deprecation warning when people use `makepkg --source` anyway.

* Add a few changes in order to make the parser work with the slightly
  updated .AURINFO format used by mkaurball.

Comments welcome.
