I no longer have use for this Ayatana indicator or its package (moved on to wingpanel-indicator-sensors).

I'll orphan it in case anyone else does.

@PedroHLC Been a while since I updated this, seems that gobject-introspection has since become a split package.

libpeas pulls gobject-introspection-runtime, but the .autogen script is checking for it's presence by the headers provided with gobject-introspection, which the package probably doesn't need. grr. other upstream problems include a number of unnecessarily linked shared libraries.

Also needed git in makedepends(); did some rearrangement of depends() and optdepends().

checking for LIBPEAS... no
configure: error: Package requirements (libpeas-1.0 >= 0.7.2) were not met:

Package 'gobject-introspection-1.0', required by 'libpeas-1.0', not found

Needs gobject-introspection to build

It isn't my intention to hide the copyright info, etc. but to avoid clutter in menus. The extra menu items serve no purpose relevant to the indicator's function; it is my opinion that status notifiers should provide explicit functionality only. I posted an issue on the author's github, asking for them to be made optional (as is done in glippy, via gsettings).

I understand why the author wants an "About" feature, but it would be just as useful as a button in the configuration dialog.

I don't see many use cases for "Quit". Indicators best fulfil their purpose by starting at log in and running until log out.

makedepends gobject-introspection is needed.
Why are you removing those menu-entries? I think it's weird. Like that you don't have a way to exit the plugin at all and copyright, version and author info are hidden.

This package includes a custom patch:
menu-cleanup.patch - removes "About" and "Quit"

It also installs some polkit rules:
is-udisks2.rules - allow checking org.freedesktop.udisks2.ata-check-{power,update} without suid
