I've uploaded my updated PKGBUILD's to GitHub.  [1]

I've noticed a few of the packages are split packages for GTK2 and GTK3
while most of them are seperate packages for GTK2 and GTK3 versions.
For MATE 1.14, I would like to have both GTK2 and GTK3 versions
available.  For future stable releases, MATE should be ready for GTK3
primetime.  The Ubuntu MATE team is working on getting their MATE 1.14
ready for GTK3 only for their 16.10 release.  The Ubuntu MATE team works
closely with upstream MATE, so the next stable MATE release should have
all their patches upstreamed by then and so I'm expecting MATE to have a
pretty solid GTK3 only release for 1.16.

I'm still getting up to speed on the development side of Arch.  I've not
altered the PKGBUILD's in any major ways, outside of bringing them up to
1.14.  If there are major changes that need to be made or any tips or
other helpful and constructive criticism, I welcome the feedback.
