This and all other elecronNN-bin packages should NOT have provides=(electron), only provides=(electronNN). Please remove these as they are causing a mess all over the Electron ecosystem since the upstream change to the electron meta package approach. This may have originally made sense, but it definitely does not now. The only package that should provide that from the AUR is the electron-bin package which is a direct replacement for electron without a version. That provision on these versioned package is going to lock people using anything that does want the sliding version of Electron into whatever version they happen to have installed and also in some cases block installing multiple Electron apps that require different versions. Additionally it is screwing up AUR helpers trying to resolve dependencies.

@xeruf Code may seem not intuitive, but when you maintain 12 different electron pkgs at the same time, it's a must.

@xeruf It's already there.

That what source code provides=("${_pkgname}") in the PKGBUILD resolves to, if you examine a code at top.

Please add provides electron=12 :)

Thanks, @TheGoliath, I updated it 3 weeks ago, but forgot to push.
