claire ~/Builds/hosts-update (git)-[master] % makepkg -o
==> ERROR: url should not be an array

With pacman 5, I think that you should remove the brackets around the url entry. So it should be
url="https://github.com/graysky2/hosts-update"

Uh, yes. Probably a good idea.

It would be neat if you could include systemd timers in the package. Monthly sounds good to me.

Daily updates are wasteful... Set your frequency to weekly or monthly.
