@jdn06: Sorry for replying so late, I failed to activate notifications. Yes, this is what I generally do. I keep RSS feeds on all the packages I maintain (GitHub provides those), so I get notified of new commits. Then I rebuild, install, test and, if all goes well, update the PKGBUILD on AUR. The pkgver() function takes care of adjusting the version automatically – so, once I’ve built it, the PKGBUILD is updated, too. Building the package on every commit also helps spot potential bugs.
What I meant by ‘one has to actually check the version number against the latest commit tag on GitHub’ was that the user would have to go to GitHub and check the commit tag against what he’s already got before deciding to recompile or not. It’s not very handy.

@korrode Thank you very much for the help!
I added desktop & icon files because it was really needed.
For APE/Monkey, I don't use it. If someone needs it, I will try to add support by using your solution.

Hi, i was the maintainer of Aqualung back on AUR3.
You might like to have a look at my old packages, they were in good order.

Check my old aqualung-svn PKGBUILD for the fix for the APE/Monkey's Audio issue.

@Joermungand: I looked your own git PKGBUILDs. If I understand well, you have to upgrade the package everytime a commit is made on github?

@Joermungand: I prefer yaourt always suggesting upgrade than never, as I usually forget to upgrade in this case.
I don't know the way to make yaourt "check the version number against the latest commit tag on GitHub". Have you a suggestion to do this?

Is there a specific reason why the package version in the PKGBUILD is not the same as the the result of the pkgver() function? It is extremely inconvenient when it comes to updating the package. Yaourt will always offer to update it (since the installed version differs from the one on the server) and one has to actually check the version number against the latest commit tag on GitHub.
