AUR shows the package as rel 2 but PKGBUILD states rel 1.

The pkgrel in .SRCINFO is different from the one in PKGBUILD. It should be 1, not 2.

Version 1.35.0 of VSCodium has introduced some breaking changes that are not accommodated in this release. The binary has been renamed to "codium", so "vscodium-bin.desktop" and the symlinks created in the PKGBUILD must be updated to use the new binary.

why it conflict with visual-studio-code-bin, if it's about code cli command, under osx, it's renamed vscodium for vscodium, and visual studio code and vscodium, can run together without conflicting between each other, also because each one of them use a different folder of the extensions. (visual studio code $HOME/.vscode and vscodium i think $HOME/.vscode-oss.

after testing, also under linux, code is replaced with vscodium, the extensions are installed under .vscode-oss,

by replacing provides=('code') by provides=('vscodium') , they can be installed beside each other without problem, i already tested

I vote too for a vscodium-bin package.

The package name should be vscodium-bin, this should be compiling tagged github releases.
(I would suggest changing this to compile from tagged releases and moving this PKGBUILD to vscodium-bin)

It also does not need to have conflicts with visual-studio-code-bin as it uses entirely separate config directories from them, it can be installed side by side like code

Actually I take that back, it conflicts with code because it's using the .vscode-oss folder in $HOME for its extensions

I think it's a good idea to add vscodium-url-handler.desktop file. (Ref to
