As of version 21.0.1180.81-2 the package has dropped the provides and conflicts entries for chromium-browser. Was this on purpose, and I just need to wait for the things that require chromium-browser to update?

This task depends upon

As far as I know, Arch never had a chromium-browser package, but the name came from debian. Thus, in my opinion, all chromium packages should provide "chromium" since this is the official package name.

It was intentional, but I forgot to mention it in the commit message. I'll admit I didn't give it much thought since nothing in the repos made use of the alternate name.

Like xduugu said, AUR packages that provide/depend on chromium-browser should switch to the canonical name.
