[aur-dev] [PATCH] git-update: Drop writing git description file

All PKGBUILDs are stored in a single repository now, so there is no use
for writing out a description file for the repo anymore.

This fixes a bug where pkgdescs containing UTF-8 characters are rejected
due to it trying to write the file out using ASCII.
