There are way too many steps in this pkgbuild. You can specify the tag directly in the sources. You don't need to use distZip, installDist creates the same files without zipping them. A java environment is needed to build this. You don't need to conflict with -bin and -git. It is their responsibility to provide and conflict with this. The startup script should just be provided as a file in this repo and listed as a source, but it can be entirely replaced with a symbolic link. Gradle already sets the correct permissions. Fixing all this results in this PKGBUILD:

    cd "$srcdir/$pkgname"
    JAVA_HOME=/usr/lib/jvm/java-8-openjdk ./gradlew :$pkgname-cli:installDist --info --stacktrace
