Systemd service file has now been added

Thanks for providing this pkgbuild. The systemd service file that is distributed in the git repository is currently not installed on the system by the build definition. Did you consider adding it?

The following should do it if added to the end of the package() definition.

mkdir -p $pkgdir/usr/lib/systemd/system/
cp gitwatch/gitwatch@.service $pkgdir/usr/lib/systemd/system/

Edit: actually the service file also needs to be patched because it points to /usr/local/bin/ while the package is installed to /usr/bin.

The following patch fixes the pkgbuild and adds the patch for the service file:
