That was a joke... I *don't* really think it is important to save the
fact that you forgot the .SRCINFO, and after all there is a time and a
place for `git filter-branch` (in fact, this is how many people migrated
from AUR3 to AUR4).

But the right solution to the question "how can I enforce proper
.SRCINFO, now I know I need them", is, as far as I am concerned, to
emulate me. See: https://github.com/eli-schwartz/pkgbuilds

githooks are where it's at. ;)
