https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/PKGBUILD#provides says:

Note: The version that the package provides should be mentioned (pkgver 
and potentially the pkgrel), in case packages referencing the software 
require one. For instance, a modified qt package version 3.3.8, named 
qt-foobar, should use provides=('qt=3.3.8'); omitting the version number 
would cause the dependencies that require a specific version of qt to 
fail. Do not add pkgname to the provides array, as it is done automatically

AFAIK it only sets -e.

Cheers to you and Luca Weiss for the reviews.

My first package will be going live soon. *happy-dance*.
