I can't find where it says that including a small Bash script is prohibited. The ArchWiki only seems to state that bundling binaries is against the rules. By the way, Johannes, I'll remind you that you're not a Trusted User :-).

Bundling source code and binaries in the tarball uploaded to the AUR is against the AUR guidlines.

Even if it's only a few KiBs it's still not allowed and if you don't have any other place to host the source you can create a public repository on Github and upload it there, having the PKGBUILD download the source from there.

What's the reasoning behind your request? I didn't think it would matter in this case. The Bash script is only about 6 KiB in size. I don't really have anywhere else to host it.

Please do not bundle the source code in the AUR tarball.

I wrote this script in 'Bash' for convenience, possibly at the expense of processing speed.

I've tried to optimise the code, but let me know if you're able to spot any areas for improvement.

I'll consider switching languages if a significant performance increase would be the result.

Since I'm the author of this application, I will always want this package to remain in the AUR.
