I liked your attitude in your previous mails you did send to this
list. Good to see someone found some time to check you PKGBUILDs and
sponsor you.

Just had a quick look at some of your packages, only saw some minor things.
- try to use install instead if cp when possible so you can make sure
the files will have the correct permissions
- in some packages you create a file in /usr/bin from within the
PKGBUILD. At least in some packages it seems you could accomplish the
same result with just a simple symlink. If it is not possible for some
package it would be better IMO to just add an executable to the source
array and install it.

That's it.
