Moving a package from the AUR to [community] means that [community] now
holds a build made by the adopting TU, incrementing the pkgrel ensures
that package users automatically get the now-official build.

Unless the package is 100% reproducible and was built in a clean environment,
the package contents will differ to the ones that users who built it themself
may already have -> My initial statement - the built package has changed.

Nobody could've possibly built it like that,
so the package never existed in that state.
