@gesh because the git commit hash can be trusted to result in the same files to a larger degree than the git tag name.

Also, I prefer git clones over tarballs. Humans packaging code into a tar file is an extra step that is not needed. More steps means more room for errors and more room for security-issues on the way.

Unclear why, in changing the source url from the tarball to a checkout, you didn't maintain the pkgver coupling:

diff --git a/PKGBUILD b/PKGBUILD
index 6e6cbac..772761c 100644
@@ -11,7 +11,7 @@ arch=(x86_64)
 makedepends=(git stack)
-source=("git+$url#commit=4d064db674203626fe5011d10874fcbc335ec9b1") # tag:

 build() {

(also unclear why the url was changed from tarball to checkout, considering this isn't a vcs package)
