The package base name is "wireguard", not sure what happens when no split
package name matches the package base name. I will give it a try...

For AUR I will prepare dkms package only, that is named wireguard-dkms.
If this ever goes to an official repository we will have wireguard-arch (for
linux), wireguard-zen (for linux-zen), ...

> === 3. Versioning ===

I uploaded a git package to AUR, that will build from git HEAD and set the
version string accordingly. Currently we have "0.r9.g0624787-1" (no tag, 9
commits, most recent commit 0624787).

If you tag "0.0.20160701_experimental" the string changes to
"0.0.20160701_experimental.r0.g0624787-1" or similar. I can define what
happens in pkgver function.

I can upload a non-cvs version when first tag appears.
main(a){char*c=/*    Schoene Gruesse                         */"B?IJj;MEH"
"CX:;",b;for(a/*    Best regards             my address:    */=0;b=c[a++];)
putchar(b-1/(/*    Chris            cc -ox -xc - && ./x    */b/42*2-3)*42);}
