"/var/log/caddy" was added in ReadWritePaths.

I think /var/log/http or /var/log/caddy should be the expected location for logs as a similar system is also used by apache and nginx. I don't think there's a bad security implication waiting there.

On my server, I just wrote 'log stderr' in Caddyfile and read access log with `journalctl -fu caddy`.
I am not sure whether it's a good decision to add a ReadWriteDirectories for everyone.
Custom systemd directives can be added with `systemctl edit caddy.service`.

Bacause there are similar files in nginx package(, those files were added by carlwgeorge.
With them, a user can just install this package, `systemctl start caddy` and get a working HTTP server with a good-looking page.

I think something like ReadWriteDirectories=/var/log/http should be added so that system level logging can be done.

Why do you install assets just to provide a dummy page?
It isn't needed in my opinion and pollutes the package build.

What's the motivation?

There is an array at the end of PKGBUILD. Plugins in that array will be compiled into the caddy binary.

Because plugins can be configured in PKGBUILD, I removed those DNS provider plugins.

Caddy 0.10.4 doesn't need `go get` now, dependencies are all in vendor directory.

Thanks for these improvements. I have added you as maintainer.

Can I be added as a co-maintainer? I would like to make a few improvements to this package. Check out what I've done with caddy-bin to see the implementation of some of these.

* build from GitHub tarball, not git clone
* build using `go build` directly, not build.bash
* run as the existing http user
* store tls things in /var/lib/caddy (created by a tmpfiles config)
* include a default example page (index.html and svg image)
* include a default Caddyfile
* run appropriate systemctl commands in caddy.install
