You should not delete the .git folder from "$srcdir/$_reponame" directly, otherwise the git repo will render non-updatable until you explicitly delete the $srcdir.

@poudink This icon theme is meant for GNOME Shell specifically. I however can be installed without depending on gnome-shell package so it might make sense to remove it from dependency list.

why is gnome-shell a dependency for this icon theme?

@dusansimic thanks for the explanation! the differences between end users and package maintaners do make a lot of sense, and the explanation for the freedesktop specifications tought me something new!

@somepaulo No problem! :) I just found out about that issue myself with that comment here. I've sent a pr for fixing it. This will however take some time to make sure all icons have both regular names and links for all other names like flatpak app ids or some other names that specific distros use.

@dusansimic Thanks for pointing out the issue with flatpak icon naming. I didn't know there was this discrepancy. I'll add flatpak support in future releases.

According to the install instructions on the GitHub page, the icons should also be copied to ~/.local/share/icons/.

Package managers (in this case pacman), should never touch user directories. In case of pacman, there are recommended directories where packages should put stuff. Since icons should be put in $XDG_DATA_DIRS/icons, it's /usr/share/icons. It doesn't matter weather icons are installed in /usr/share/icons or ~/.local/share/icons since GNOME follows XDG Base Dir Spec. The instructions on the project page are meant for users that are installing it manually, not for package maintainers. Users don't really need to follow standards as long as they know where they put stuff, package maintainers do.

Right now if I am not mistaken, only native packages have the icons applied, Flatpaks seem to lack custom icons

That's the issue with the theme. For example native firefox package in the desktop file for the Icon key has the name firefox and the icon in the theme has the name firefox.svg so the theme icon is used by the native version. In the flatpak case however, the desktop file for the Icon key contains the name org.mozilla.firefox so the theme should symlink the file org.mozilla.firefox.svg to firefox.svg and the issue should be fixed. This should be reported to upstream since it's not the issue with the AUR package.
