this is the git version of dmenufm as you can see in the PKGBUILD.

I stand corrected. Sorry for the confusion. I was multitasking at the time. Too many tabs and terminal open. Read too fast the message:

The PKGBUILD for this package is hosted here (contributions are welcome!): 
https://gitlab.com/dpeukert/pkgbuilds/tree/master/dmenufm

My eyes just read "the SOURCE is hosted in gitlab". and got "dpeukert" as the author of dmenufm, instead of maintainer. The author is of course huijunchen9260.

My PKGBUILD provides the git version of dmenufm the other provides the release version of dmenufm.

Maybe you should read arch wiki what the difference is: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Arch_User_Repository#What_is_the_difference_between_foo_and_foo-git_packages?

Could I please ask you to change the name of this package ? To something like,

dmenufm2-git

or similar. And additionally, if possible change the executable installed frome "dmenufm" to "dmenufm2" ? No need to keep the "conflicts with dmenufm" thing in that case.

The reason is, this git-package makes it confusing for users interested in:

https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/dmenufm/
https://gitlab.com/dpeukert

A user who doesnt check carefully might assume that "dmenufm-git" is the git version of "dmenufm" which it currently is not.

There is no dmenufm-git for this dpeukert version, but that might be if you haven't taken that name.

dmenufm was created 2020-01-06 and dmenufm-git was created after it in 2020-01-31 Thanks in advance
