Usually users can upload packages which doesn't provide link to sources due to 
a license requirements. In these cases PKGBUILD contains some information to 
get sources or it offers to register/buy/etc and to download sources using a 
console browser then.

The current PKGBUILD *doesn't* provide any link to the source archive and it 
just contains information how users can get it. But as it was stated above [1] 
it did download the sources at the time of the request.

I don't think that the current PKGBUILD violates the license requirements. Do 
you still want to remove the package from AUR?
