Hi maintainer!
There is no need to make PKGBUILD and install file executable.

Instead of 755 permission for PKGBUILD and install file, 644 permission works fine.

PKGBUILD and install file aren't meant to be launhed directly. Pacman's makepkg will spawn a shell process to process PKGBUILD and related install file. So that, to prevent user from accidentally executing ./PKGBUILD directly (although it does nothing), you should remove executable permission from PKGBUILD and related files.

You forgot to update the md5sum for 044-1

./configure should not be in "package()" but in "build()"

also it's missing configure arguments,


systemdsystemunitdir is vital for proper initramfs shutdown

Apparently, dracut now needs "./configure" to be run explicitly.

The file "Makefile" has:

dracut.pc: Makefile

but there is no rule to make "", which is actually created by "configure". So "./configure" can be added to the "build()" function in PKGBUILD.

I deside add pigz as a dep.

case $compress in
gzip) compress="gzip -n -9 --rsyncable"; command -v pigz > /dev/null 2>&1 && compress="pigz -9 -n -T -R";;

$ gzip -n -9 --rsyncable <some_file>
gzip: unrecognized option '--rsyncable'
Try `gzip --help' for more information.

So, either remove the command line switch '--rsyncable' from that line in the file "/usr/bin/dracut", or install the "pigz" package. Which is to say, practically, "pigz" should be a dependency for dracut.

Sugestion to improve are welcome.

You've got bash in both depends and optdepends - that makes no sense.
