If there are no file conflicts then you do not need an entry in the conflicts

If you rename the package (uppity-git -> uppity), do you plan to modify it so
that it builds from fixed tags? If not then it should not be renamed as it
remains a git package. Renaming it would be against our guidelines.

I also noticed that you are using "cd $_gitname" in the PKGBUILD. Please see my
reply to someone else about why this is incorrect[1] and update it to do
everything in "$srcdir/$_gitname".

If uppity is a true successor to curlpaste in [community] then I believe they
may be swapped without approval, but wait for someone else to confirm it.
