Just use mksrcinfo from pkgbuild-introspection-git at
https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/pkgbuild-introspection-git (I
suppose mksrcinfo will be incorporated into pkgbuild-introspection).

Generating such a file manually is error-prone, using mksrcinfo ensures
that the file is exactly what AURweb needs.

Best, Marcel
