Hi Gabriel

the package the license is include in readme and install files

in this case need install two files

install -Dm644 README ${pkgdir}/usr/share/licenses/${pkgname}/README
install -Dm644 INSTALL ${pkgdir}/usr/share/licenses/${pkgname}/INSTALL

or extract that licenses fron that files and put on in License1 and
License2 (or both in same file) and install in the same metod

i've download your package, and namcap say this:

   python2-crack E: ELF file ('usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/_crack.so')
found in an 'any' package.

in this case need add arch=('x86_64'  'i686') instead arch=('any')


   python2-crack E: Dependency python detected and not included (programs
['python'] needed in scripts ['usr/share/doc/python-crack/checkpass.py'])

this need more package workground, for example "sed" all .py script to
change python to python2 (if you want only python2 package)

like: find -type f -name '*.py*' -exec sed -i 's|/usr/bin/python$|&2|g' {}

note: the patch is in prepare() function, not in build()
