It would also be great if the following improvements could be made:

  • The PKGBUILD is built as if this is a -git package, but it isn't. There are tagged and versioned releases available on Github: https://github.com/awslabs/git-secrets/releases A tarball should be downloaded from here, and an appropriate checksum should be included to verify the download.

  • It's unnecessary to specify git as a make dependency when it's required at runtime.

  • It's unnecessary to specify make as a make dependency because users are expected to have the entire base-devel package group installed to build AUR packages.

  • It's unnecessary to specify gcc as a make dependency because there is no C code that requires compilation.

  • awk, sed and coreutils should probably be listed as dependencies, as they are actually used in the code.

The license field should just be set to "Apache". Additionally, there's no need to include the license file in the package, as it's already available as part of the "licenses" package.
