Hi, I'm new to the AUR, so please excuse me if this isn't the place to discuss this.

Is there really a need for the bash dependency? It isn't a problem for me, but I'm just interested. Is the second line in the file xinitrcsession-helper : "${XINITRC:=$HOME/.xinitrc}" a bashism?

@yan12125 I have addressed your licensing comment and fixed a couple of other things. Please let me know if there is anything else.

licence should be license, and it's better to pick a license instead of using "unknown".
