I see, but the extension is out of date, there is no point in tracking
releases (similar to the situation with other gnome extensions). Since
*-git package tracks master, it cannot possibly be older than "release"
package, it is only that the old version is hardcoded in PKGBUILD. (Note
that I flagged the package just because it does not work for the current
version of gnome).

Once the code starts working for newest gnome releases, *-git package
will be fine again.
