@lmartinez-mirror I'm using both sherlock-git and elementary-sherlock. They both work together and the version seems to be the same as this package. So deleting this package and "redirecting" people to the elementary-sherlock package would probably be suffice.

But i also understand that the "elementary" part is confusing as elementary- packages are normally for the elementary distro/DE.

EDIT: looking at the git repo, it seems like it has something to do with elementary os but not officially.

I can definitely arrange renaming the package, though to be honest it doesn't look like there's many people using this package in the first place. I'm inclined to delete it since there hasn't been any upstream activity either way.

Hello, I'm the current maintainer for the sherlock-git AUR PKGBUILD. People have been complaining that there's a conflict and potential confusion between our packages. After looking at the popularity metrics I feel that your sherlock AUR package should be renamed and it's installed files possibly patched to reflect this new name. The best name I can come up with "sherlock-ip", I noticed there's an orphaned "elementary-sherlock" PKGBUILD, but that might be confusing since "elementary" is also a distro. It's up to you, I don't care since it personally doesn't affect me but people are complaining about it.
