In addition to this, I'll be releasing a new version of mkaurball today
which ceases generation of AURINFO and creates SRCINFO instead. If
you're using a recent enough pacman-git[0], mkaurball will just forward
on makepkg, offering very little of its own logic.

Consider this is the beginning of my efforts to deprecate mkaurball. Of
of the pacman 4.2.0, mkaurball will be obsolete and will likely be
replaced with a script which just yells at you to use makepkg instead.
