@dreieck Version 0.1.1-2 adds a firmware-manager symlink.

@dreieck: I symlink com.system76.FirmwareManager to firmware-manager in my firmware-manager-git package. However, it makes no sense to symlink com.system76.FirmwareManager.Notify as it's only used by com.system76.FirmwareManager.Notify.service.

As far as the Cargo crates, that's how it works. Go packages are similar. Please don't spam every AUR package that uses Rust. See Arch package guidelines.

The executables get installed at the non-intuitive names /usr/bin/com.system76.FirmwareManager and /usr/bin/com.system76.FirmwareManager.Notify.

Can you make them installed (or symlinked) to intuitive names, like firmware-manager and firmware-manager.Notify?

Thanks for maintaining!

Your PKGBUILD downloads stuff in build().

This must not happen. No internet connection must be assumed in build() and package().

Please make sure that everything needed to build the software is downloaded in the source-array, if that is not possible use the prepare()-function and download stuff there. (source-array has the advantage that user's makepkg.conf-settings are honoured.)
