[Debian-Islamic-maintainers] Bug#802512: Please split off gnome-shell extension into separate package with proper dependencies

Source: hijra
Version: 0.2.1-1
Severity: normal


hijra-applet provides a gnome-shell extension in
/usr/share/gnome-shell/extensions/HijriApplet at ojuba.org/

Please consider splitting that gnome-shell extension into a separate
binary package, say gnome-shell-extension-hijra and adding proper
depends on gnome-shell. For the current version that would be according
to metadata.json:

Depends: gnome-shell (>= 3.2), gnome-shell (<< 3.3)

This way breakage like that in #799441 can be more easily detected when
updating gnome-shell to newer versions and users of that extension will
be notified before the upgrade.
