It is a git package, so after trying for about an hour to get it to work the way that is described on the wiki page, I thought I could try to push it to a separate remote repository (the aur4 repository). Is there a way to do this? I tried

  pacman -Sy pkgbuild-introspection
  git filter-branch -f --tree-filter "test -f .SRCINFO || mksrcinfo"

This will go through the current branch and, if no .SRCINFO exists in
a commit, create one and edit the commit (rewriting history).  This is
part of what my script[1] does.
