We shall not evaluate user-uploaded shellscripts on the AUR server. Most
AUR helpers provide a --devel option to download packages with a
pkgver() function and check them for updates.

Non-development AUR packages are not permitted to change their version
just by running makepkg and having the pkgver() update it, since this
implies that the non-development AUR package uses VCS sources that are
not pinned to a specific commit or tag.

Please report such package violations for deletion or other corrective
