Today, I wanted to update caddy-full-bin
(https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/caddy-full-bin/) but the push into
AUR was rejected because the `.SRCINFO` check crashed:

|remote: Traceback (most recent call last): remote: File "hooks/update",
line 389, in <module> remote: save_metadata(metadata, conn, user)

It seems that the column that stores source URLs in the database is to
small: `|Data too long for column 'Source' at row 1|`.
Here is an example source URL from the `.SRCINFO`: `|source_i686 =

|Caddys buildserver requires to pass all those parameters, therfore I
can't reduce the length of the URL.
There is an archlinux forum thread for discussing this issue:
