Hi Daniel,

Thanks for your review.

What exactly do you mean by "install the license"? Put a copy of it into 
the package?

The payload code is one Perl script with 1400+ lines.

For brevity's sake I am trying to keep it in one package, but if the 
community rules dictate to split it into PKGBUILD & source, then so be it.

I wrote a little build script in order to wrap everything into the 
package itself. The script uses

makepkg -g >> PKGBUILD

which produces the md5sums array. How do I get it to use something else 
than md5sum? Simply roll my own by using sha256sum?
