Unless vala-panel-appmenu-registrar and vala-panel-appmenu-registrar-git can be installed side-by-side, the conflicts is needed to tell the package manager to uninstall one when the other is installed. Otherwise the user would have to manually uninstall one before installing the other.

By convention, the base package (vala-panel-appmenu-registrar) does not list any provides/conflicts, while alternate packages (vala-panel-appmenu-registrar-git) list the base package, even when the base package does not exist.

Which is "better" is up to the end user to decide.

I just looked at a few of your other packages, and it looks like you may have a lot of -git packages that need provides/conflicts to be updated.

Okay. But is a non-git package required? I am not explicitly tested than registrar's tagged versions is better than git one.

This needs to conflicts with vala-panel-appmenu-registrar.
