Ah, now I understand. But those packages contain filenames with '://'
in it, so I think this patch will just let those PKGBUILDs go through
without those files being present, am I right?

Nevertheless, there are other cases I didn't think of, like
https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/ttf-ms-win8/ where source files
should be provided by the user. Providing zero-length dummy files looks
like a solution, but isn't, as the checksums provided should be correct
against those user-provided files, not the dummy ones.

I can't think of a solution to this at the moment, perhaps someone else?

And *if* we go for solution 2, it should indeed be well-documented.

Best, Marcel
