This mailing list is fine for any discussion about developing AUR
packages, including questions about the PKGBUILD format.

But I am curious -- have you read the wiki documentation at
https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/PKGBUILD#pkgrel and if so, is there
anything that was still unclear to you after reading it?
