It would be great to have an option to disable the notifications. It looks super weird on i3. But hey, great work getting this packaged up

Cool, thanks everyone.

@Muflone and @jvybihal, thank you too!

@jvybihal done! And feel free to update it without problems.

Muflone commented on 2019-12-11 15:28

please consider adding a replace and conflict with ms-teams

also the URL should be replaced with the project home page or official website

thank you @jvybihal and @ogarcia for settling the things so easily.

I'm therefore deleting the ms-teams package, now useless.

@Muflone ok :)

Also, I think teams-for-linux-official-bin by @dennisoehme should merge too, I saw he put some nice work into PGP validation and it is always nice to have.

@muflone, the package that is a duplicate of ms-teams is that is a different version of teams only for insider users. This package is the open one, I think that both packages must exist since are differents versions.

I added @jvybihal as co-maintainer in both packages, this and

@jvybihal I think that names must be teams and teams-insiders as original ones. People find this package before ms-teams because enter teams word in search box and suggest this one.

@jvybihal I think the teams name suits better. You could co-maintain it along with @ogarcia

Then we can delete the ms-teams package

I agree that the duplicates need to merge into one. I contacted @ogarcia about a month ago with PRQ#16712. He suggested keeping name teams-insiders - which kind of makes sense, because it's the naming MS uses, but I (as some others) like ms-teams much better. So I decided not to argue and let it be, without reply - I knew my package was not originally aimed for the insiders version, I just wanted to create the ground for official release once it came out. And now it did, and I switched my package to it.

It is beyond my understanding why we have 3 packages of the same thing now, and what is the reasoning behind it.

Anyway, I like ms-teams name, but I don't care too much about it, so merging everything into 'teams' is fine with me, if others like it better. I can co-maintain it, but I do not insist on it.

Works fine to me. The only issue that I have so far is the auto-correction and the spell check is not working any more. Any other here with the same issue?
