Please don't flag the package out of date. Wol-systemd is working fine.

Please add a comment here if you have some observations.

Ok, done!

If the code originated as a contribution on the Arch Wiki, it is probably actually licensed under the FDL, use license=(FDL1.3) (and no license file required).

This package was not originally mine. I don'y know why the license is MIT, this is only a systemd service.

Maybe I could change to GPL, for which it is not necessary a specific file.

From the wiki:

"If a package is licensed under one of these licenses, the value should be set to the directory name, e.g. license=('GPL')"

There are six exception license types that are considered "standard" for the license array but you still need to package the file, see Wiki docs on this issue. You can also get tipped off to mistakes like this by running namcap on a generated package. Note not all of it's lint warnings are always valid (for example it suggests ethtool might not be a dependency, which would be wrong) but it does get this license issue right:

$ namcap wol-systemd-20210121-1-any.pkg.tar.zst
wol-systemd E: Missing custom license directory (usr/share/licenses/wol-systemd)
wol-systemd W: Dependency included and not needed ('ethtool')

I don't think that is necessary if the licence type is declared in the PKGBUILD:

This package is missing the required license directory.

Any chance this package is updated with After set to:

On my machine it seems like network card (r8169) is initialized AFTER is up, which means this script fails to enable WOL. Moving initialization to fixes the issue.
