How does it handle repos where .SRCINFO weren't tracked in the past?
When I used git subtree to split out one dir and tried to push that to aur-dev it complained about missing .SRCINFO in the latest commit.
Amended .SRCINFO to the latest commit and the push to aur-dev complained again about missing .SRCINFO in the next commit after the latest.
So I had the impression I would need to rewrite the whole history of all my maintained packages.
But looking at your script it seems I misinterpret something from the error message back then, as the files just get created, but not added to the index?

Best regards
