[solved] What differentiates the development version of a package?

When installing packages from the AUR there are usually two versions of the same package, ill use polybar as an example here.

The way they are names makes me think that the -git version gets built from the git repository itself. If anyone would be so kind to confirm and or further explain this to me that'd be great!

Correct.

I'm not sure what further explanation you could be seeking.  What about that doesn't make sense?

Even more so with the docs @Slithery just linked, I appreciate it.
