You're downloading the source directly from master, which means this
package will fail the integrity checksums as soon as there is any sort
of update.

Where do you even get a version number from? The source repository has
no tags... if it did have a tag, you could download the tagged release!
Therefore, this should be a *-git package, and you should download the
repository as a whole via git, then use the pkgver function from

$srcdir and $pkgdir are not quoted. What do you think will happen if I
try building this package from "$HOME/aur packages/gopro-tools/"?

Your PKGBUILD claims the package is licensed under the GPL3 but I cannot
find any trace of a license in the upstream repository.
