Just a last couple of nitpicks:

On purely visual grounds, you may wish to stick a line of whitespace in
between the Maintainer line and the beginning of the PKGBUILD variables,
to make it stand out better.

Non *-git packages have no need to conflict the *-git version, the *-git
version, being the exception, should declare the conflict.
And only one package needs to declare the conflict for pacman to figure
it out.

And if you actually want the *-git version to not include .r0.g<commit>
then you may want to remove --long from the `git describe` invocation in
pkgver() -- but personally I prefer it to be there.
As it is now, you seem to have manually removed it but it will
automatically be added back as soon as the PKGBUILD is used.
