I have seen some of the GNOME Shell extensions in the repos with the

naming standard should be established, I would suggest that each
package contains a single extension, so the name sans "s" would be
most correct. In the future if a meta package was created to be
calling multiple extensions then "extensions" would be more correct.
Some reviewers already tried to harmonize this:
Using this approach:
These extensions were built as subpackages of the main package
"gnome-shell-extensions", and so named
as defined in the guidelines.
It seemed logical to me to refer to "third-party" extensions under the
name "gnome-shell-extension-<bar>", since the package would provide only
one extension "a priori". Maybe we'll need to specify guidelines for
such extensions, becoming more numerous.
(see comment 3 of the same bug report).
This sounds like a valid approach to me.
