Thanks for the feedback. If you'd like your version to stay up that's fine with me. I'd just suggest you add a pkgver function to update the version and add imagemagick as an optdepend as it's required for the animate gif functionality. Or if you'd prefer to co-maintain this package that's fine too.

I started working on a PKGBUILD for primitive last week after reading up on it on HN, but I had to stop before completing it. I resumed today after verifying that it hadn't been uploaded yet, but I missed your package and so I went on and created one for the exact same version, simply called "primitive" after reading several times https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Go_package_guidelines#Naming.

This makes our packages redundant, although the PKGBUILDs themselves differ slightly.
Why did you include imagemagick as a dependency?
Also, the CVS tool used to download the sources (git) should be included in the makedepends array, as per https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/VCS_package_guidelines#Guidelines.
Finally, it is good practice to install the package-specific MIT license, as described in https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/PKGBUILD#license.

I also included other files provided with the source (bots/, examples/ and scripts/) for completeness sake.

Tell me what you think of my PKGBUILD, so that we can discuss a merge of the two packages and maybe co-maintain this :)
