Hello Mason,
thank you for the explanation, it certainly cleared things up.
Moreover now I see the luakit-git used git -b master to explicitly
update to master, which I didn't notice before.

I'm in favor of deleting luakit-devel-git and updating the luakit-git
to checkout the "develop" branch. The -git packages normally
represents the development version, so adding -devel- can be
considered superfluous. And it needs more typing.

cantabille, jwbirdsong: is that OK with you? But you would need to
decide who is going to develop the luakit-git package.
