It's rather insulting of you to accuse us of writing a malfunctioning
AUR, rather than asking if we know why this is not working for you.
Especially because it works for nearly every other package on the AUR.

And especially, because you failed to regenerate the .SRCINFO file. The
AUR is not arbitrarily executing every random PKGBUILD that
possibly-malicious people upload.

Instead, the .SRCINFO is a metadata file which the AUR uses as the
source of all information. And you did not update the AUR metadata...

It would be great, if your attitude was patched with a future version of
nullptr_t OS.
