On the advice of Marcel Korpel I have fixed my pre-commit hook to not fail
on whitespace errors -- something that can easily affect patch files! I see
you committed my scripts earlier...

FWIW you can use filter-branch to run mksrcinfo on each folder in your
current aur-packages repo, then merge in my base branch and continue on as
before. Might have to resolve a conflict between our .gitignores, (I may be
biased but I prefer mine :-P ) but other than that it should work fine.
