I wish this came in as a comment first and not a deletion request.
To address the complaint:
> pkgver uses external resources (curls vendor website)
The version of the insiders build changes dozens of times a day as it's automated upstream. I don't see anything in AUR guidelines against pkgver using external resources, but I'm open to suggestions here.
> possibly confusion around sources and pkgver
No idea what this means.
> missing -bin suffix for a binary package
Omitting the suffix is common and popular practice on AUR  when the source code is not available. Visual Studio Code is a closed source, proprietary product.
So I'm not sure a rename is warranted here but I'd be happy to change it if a TU says so.
