You what now? Why do you need to update the .SRCINFO at all? The
PKGBUILD is not updated in the AUR, therefore the .SRCINFO is not
updated in the AUR either.

.SRCINFO is not used by makepkg at all, in any way, shape or form, so
there's simply nothing to discuss about that.

This is simply how git packages work. Stop trying to automatically
version it, because there's no such thing as automatic versioning.

There is only automatic updating.

aurpublish *is* a local script to do that.


I'm still rather unclear on what your goal is.
