You should rename the package to qtmind-git, and make use of the
pacman 4.1 VCS templates [1] (i.e. put the git repo URL in the sources
array, write a pkgver function, and don't manually clone/make a build

You should also surround every $srcdir and $pkgdir with double quotes.
You also might want to check whether the Makefile has a install
recipe, rather than manually installing the files.

I don't know why you want to use capital letters everywhere. The
description is grating enough without $pkgname doing it too.
