Cloning, updating the PKGBUILD, creating the .SRCINFO, and then pushing it
back should probably do the job.

If I may, I have some suggestions for your PKGBUILD:
1) adjust sed to remove "cabal" from pkgver
2) remove blank lines between the variables at start, and
3) move SANDBOX variable into build() as it is not used anywhere.
4) remove "cabal-install" as makedeps (your PKGBUILD provides it, so can't
depend on it)

Best Regards,
