Package is missing some build dependencies (meson and gobject-introspection), plus it fails to install because "LICENSE" has been renamed to "copyright", patch for anyone interested:

Hi I'm hitting this error, there seem to need a "LICENSE" file which is not present.

install: cannot stat 'LICENSE': No such file or directory
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in package().
aura >>= There was a makepkg failure.
aura >>= Would you like to continue anyway? [Y/n] n
aura >>= Building failed.

Thanks for any help regarding that matter.

Regarding the latter, I opened the issue:, workaround included.

msitools-git/PKGBUILD: line 32: arch-meson: command not found

arch-meson may be found in the following packages: extra/meson 0.54.3-1 /usr/bin/arch-meson

libmsi/ ERROR: Program(s) ['g-ir-scanner'] not found or not executable

g-ir-scanner may be found in the following packages: extra/gobject-introspection 1.64.1-2 /usr/bin/g-ir-scanner

So these should probably be makedepends. Then after installing this and running msiextract I get:

msiextract: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
