I always see source packages linked to how we upload package to AUR.
Now that AUR has moved to git, I'm wondering why we don't drop these
source packages in order to let source management to git.

I understand the need of getting the source of the package I installed
locally, but what is the pros of having special source packages in
order to replace ABS, instead of a regular package putting source files
in a directory like /usr/src/pacman/$pkgname/$pkgver?
