Out of curiosity: aurweb usually displays the message

    remote: warning: .SRCINFO unchanged. The package database will not be updated!

when you try to push changes without updating .SRCINFO. Did the message
not appear when you tried to push? Was it not clear enough? Did it get
lost in the other messages printed during `git push`?
