Following line should be removed from PKGBUILD due to it breaks successful package creation:

install -Dm644 "$pkgname/README.rst" "$pkgdir/usr/share/doc/$pkgname/README"

install: cannot stat 'restic-git/README.rst': No such file or directory ==> ERROR: A failure occurred in package(). Aborting...

Thanks, rgds, hg

The README.rst is now a (see here). Please change the extension in the package() step.

Need to remove the 'v' character in 'pkgver=' in PKGBUILD to comply with standards.

Please change 'go>=1.3' to 'go' as it creates conflicts when "go-pie" is installed (anyway versioned deps doesn't make sense in arch). Even better change it to 'go-pie' which arch migrates to

Thank you for reporting the broken README.
I've fixed the package - enjoy!

Ah, it seems the error is in restics git repository in doc/PKGBUILD.
I reported the issue upstream.

The build seems broken:

==> Extracting sources...
-> Creating working copy of restic git repo...
Cloning into 'restic-git'...
==> Starting pkgver()...
==> Updated version: restic-git v0.5.0.r218.g089b04c8-1
==> Starting build()...
==> Entering fakeroot environment...
==> Starting package()...
install: cannot stat 'restic-git/': No such file or directory
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in package().
==> ERROR: Makepkg was unable to build restic-git.
==> Restart building restic-git ? [y/N]

There is not, just a README.rst.
