The package can't be simply reused to use the GitHub
source. There is no version information available and no tagged
releases. So the package should renamed to "emma-git".

The project itself has no relevance any more and there is nobody
actively maintaining it. I thought it would be the best to delete the
"emma" package and if there is any demand, create a "emma-git" package
with the new source. If this is not an option, I can change the source
to GitHub and adjust the PKGBUILD so that the project builds again. But
the project should in any case renamed to emma-git, so I can remove the
version number.
