hello Leonidas. first of all, I wish you luck with your application.

I have reviewed your pkgbuilds and would like to share some notes:

# aarchup
this is the default behavior, so this line is unnecessary.
install -Dm644 LICENSE.md "$pkgdir/usr/share/licenses/$pkgname/LICENSE"
GPL3 is in licenses package so no need to install it.

# auracle-git
you can use "${pkgname%-git}" instead.

# caatinga-git
cd "${srcdir}/${pkgname%-git}"
all makepkg's functions start in ${srcdir}.
python2 setup.py install --root="${pkgdir}/" --optimize=1
no python2-setuptools in makedepends.
I take this opportunity to recommend building aur packages in a clean chroot.
it helps to identify just such errors.

# corefreq-git
no git in makedepends.

# freeplane
mkdir -p
I recommend to use install for that.
Moreover. below install will create these folders on its own thanks
to the D flag.

# gnome-shell-extension-cpufreq
you can use ${pkgname#gnome-shell-extension-} instead.
mkdir -p "${pkgdir}/usr/share/gnome-shell/extensions/"
I recommend to use install for that.

# ntellij-idea-ce-eap, intellij-idea-ue-eap
mkdir -p
I recommend to use install for that.
cat <<EOF
a nicer looking solution is to put this file in git and modify it
with sed in prepare function.
    mkdir -p "${pkgdir}/usr/bin/"
    mkdir -p "${pkgdir}/usr/share/applications/"
    mkdir -p "${pkgdir}/usr/share/licenses/${pkgname}/"
all of this is unnecessary since install will create these folders.
ln -sf "${srcdir}/${_pkgname}-${_buildver}/license/$i" "${pkgdir}/usr/share/licenses/${pkgname}/$i"
I do not quite understand why this is needed, but it does not look correct.
and it seems to me that namcap will agree with me.

# python-sklearn-pandas
mkdir -p "${pkgdir}/usr/share/licenses/${pkgname}/"
install will do this for you.

Sincerely, Alexander | Trusted User
