  Description     : Sound output device chooser extension for GNOME Shell

Sound output device chooser shows a list of sound output devices (similar
to the GNOME sound settings) in the status menu below the volume slider.
It lets you select the active device and output port (HDMI , Speakers etc.).

I would like to maintain this under the umbrella of the Debian GNOME
Maintainers team. With the maintainer field set to the team and myself
in uploaders. I'm open to others also updating the package in the

I initially intended to name the package
gnome-shell-extension-sound-OUTPUT-device-chooser as this is the
upstream name of the plugin with gnome-shell-extension prepended. But
this gives a lintian warning because the file names in the source and
binary packages are too long (> 80 chars). The best I could come up so
far to resolve this is to strip the "output" part out of the package
name. But I'm open to better suggestions.
