Why not just providing the vst (2) plugin?

Yes, this could decrease build time. But I would guess this would lead only to very small build time reduction, since the audio processing code is shared for all plugin types.

However: there are disadvantages: if this package would depend on community/surge the overall complexity would be increased, because this would be a strict coupling between these two packages, i.e. this package must strictly be updated after community/surge has been updated.

For example: I'm using Manjaro and Manjaro gets the Arch packages a while after Arch packages are updated. But it's perect to use the AUR from Manjaro, as long as the dependencies for the AUR package are provided by Manjaro. For this it's better if the AUR package has a loose coupling to its dependencies.

@osch: Why not just providing the vst (2) plugin? That way you can simply depend on community/surge for assets and not have to add conflicts/provides (and have a shorter build time).

I tried to fix it. Could you try building again with current PKGBUILD?
