Be aware that VSCode seems to ignore telemetry settings.
The extension gallery is the telemtry source for official releases (hence it being stripped out in a true OSS version). Also Microsoft plugins aswell seem to ignore the telemetry setting.

I've added some keywords. The description was changed because some AUR helpers apparently have trouble without it (see a few comments below yours).

In any case, it's a cosmetic change so it will have to wait till the next release at least.

Do not use the package name in the pkgdesc. Instead, use AUR keywords (found in the AUR web interface).

For me fonts in the editor didn't render until I installed the 'ttf-droid' package (which provides the Droid Sans Mono font used by VS code as the default).

It may be useful for others running into this to add that package as an optdepends with an appropriate description.

Thanks for packaging this!

Sure, I'll update the description with the next update.

If I search with `yaourt -Ss "visual studio code"` it won't show me this entry probably because there's no mention of the name in the description. Could you include "Visual Studio Code" or similar somewhere in the description so that more people can find the package? It found only -git and -oss versions, so I thought there must be a normal version without any postfix and googled it.
Thanks for packaging.

UPD. Regarding emails & such: you're a rock star in scope of the AUR, this package has 40+ popularity rate and 351 votes currently. So yeah, I'd expect a decent response immediately when the package doesn't build. Just deal with it.

No problem. Everything cool ;-)

Sorry, please don't take it personally. It just gets a bit overwhelming sometimes.

I thought your comment was "useless" (maybe not the best choice of words), because the package was already flagged out of date so it didn't add anything new, it was basically just another "me too" which is not helpful.

Anyway, it should work fine now.

Useless? Sorry I didn't knew that it is useless for you to tell you that the package could not be installed on my machine. I installed it the first time today on my machine and didn't knew that there was an update today. Also I didn't knew that 1 person flagged it out of date and 3 persons wrote an email.

For me I just wanted to install this package today on my new machine and saw this error coming up. Nothing more. I'm sorry that I disturbed you and will not annoy you anymore.

Guys, please. A hotfix was released 10 seconds ago and we already have:

- 1 person flagging it out of date,
- 3 different people emailing me to update it,
- Yet another person posting a useless comment with a failed checksum.

So please calm down and stop spamming me. It's a minor release of a text editor, it's not the end of the world. Hell, the fixes are Windows/OSX only.

Updated to 1.11.1.
