I did not tell you to write a merge request. Not seeing results in a search for merge requests is the reason I thought this was not a rename scenario.

I did not ask you to update "today". It is not urgent. Later this month or next would be fine. I will check back in a week or so. If the package is not updated, I will flag it as a reminder.

@xiota why I should write a merge request to myself?

About renames - I did this operation in that time with all of my multidesktop packages. If somebody want old package name - I will remove 'replaces' in all wanted names. But doing preemptively - not today. Maybe this month at least.

My mistake on the rename scenario. I searched for merge requests and didn't see any results.

The guideline is for future renames ("to be renamed"). The rename was long in the past, five years ago, so users have had plenty of time to install the new version.

@xiota For date of a rename, please see

@xiota it was a rename scenario. When I wrote a PKGBUILD, I decided to store translations inside a 'vala-panel-sntray-translations' package. But next time I added gschemas to software, and decide to store gschemas alongside a translations. So, package 'vala-panel-sntray-translations' got renamed to 'vala-panel-sntray-common' and 'replaces' appeared. AFAIK, this is exactly a case of a replaces. Or I am wrong?

replaces forces users to use your package. The scenario you probably intend is for the other package to be removed when yours is installed. That is handled by conflicts. If your package can be used to satisfy dependencies, you should also add a provides.

As far as "forbidden", AUR submission guidelines state: Do not use replaces in an AUR PKGBUILD unless the package is to be renamed...

Since this is not a rename scenario, the guideline is clear that replaces is not to be used.

@xiota why? It is forbidden now?

Please remove replaces directive. Thank you.

This needs vala-panel in depends (building in clean chroot)

As i couldn't find anything about gtk theme relate to the systray or status icon, i download the source of the package and found vala-panel.css inside the src folder, that file has the setting to add space between icons :)
