Overall, they look fine. Be aware, though, that the AUR doesn't support split packages, so you have to work around that. Specifically, something like this:

true && pkgname=(python-factory_boy python2-factory_boy)

You also run into the fact that setting up split packages like this forces someone who wants the python2 version to have python3 installed and vice versa. For this reason, I prefer to keep them separate in the AUR.
