eschwartz [1] filed a deletion request for rust-nightly-osdev [2]:

Installs rust-nightly using sh.rustup.rs into /opt, then chmod 777 so
that anyone can modify it for "update" purposes. Please. That's why
community/rustup exists.

There are several other PKGBUILD violations, including the use of curl
in pkgver=$() for dynamically updating versions, compiling with cargo
install during package(), or installing the symlinks in /usr/bin using
install scripts rather than package(). But fixing these would not
help, since it would still be a duplicate of using rustup.
