Gnome 41 is coming, if you don't want to update it, you can disown this package

If you don't have enough time to maintain it, you can add other people as co-maintainers.

Um, the new update (v40) is only compatible with gnome-shell version 40. Could you please adjust the depends array accordingly, so that people do not accidentially install this update prematurely?

Thank you!

WoefulDerelict, would you mind hosting a -git version too?

Can you change conflicts=('gnome-shell-extensions-git') with gnome-shell-extension-arch-update-git?

Extension and package very useful congratulations

ThanosGR: I can confirm the issue. I was painting with overly broad strokes without properly scrutinizing the original subject matter. I've pushed out an updated PKGBUILD that corrects the mistake.

Hi, application settings dialog is failing with error -"FileError: Failed to open file “/usr/share/gnome-shell/extensions/arch-update@RaphaelRochet/prefs.xml”: No such file or directory" Based on PKGBUILD prefs.xml is moved under /usr/share/glib-2.0/schemas/ However JS is not locating the file properly.If i copy the file it seems to work properly

I have installed with makepkg -si

Can we add missing dependency pacman-contrib?
