Details

a could of issues i noticed with this package today

the license declared in the PKGBUILD (GPL) does not correspond to the upstream website (BSD-3clause)

http://w1.fi/cgit/hostap/plain/wpa_supplicant/README

also, (minor detail) the URL in the PKGBUILD (http://hostap.epitest.fi/wpa_supplicant) actually redirects to a different domain (http://w1.fi/wpa_supplicant/) which matches that of the source URL (https://w1.fi/releases/${pkgname}-${pkgver}.tar.gz)
This task depends upon
