I created ./.AURINFO which contains a single line:

 pkgdesc = NVIDIA drivers for linux-ck.

I ran `makepkg --source` to gen the AUR package but found no traces of
the .AURINFO file therein.  Unsurprisingly, the AUR did not pickup on
this when I uploaded the corresponding nvidia-ck-313.30-5.src.tar.gz
package.  Are users expected to manually add .AURINFO to the
src.tar.gz post makepkg?

Thanks for the clarification.
