Motivation for this change

Version in nix has been unmaintained but a fork has had updates for the last two gnome versions - could be backported to 20.03 as well to unbreak there - I've been using it since January and it works fine.

No tags upstream so switched to a revision and changed version to a date. Not sure if I've gone the right way about all of the things in the nixpkg though.

Things done
  • Tested using sandboxing (nix.useSandbox on NixOS, or option sandbox in nix.conf on non-NixOS linux)
  • Built on platform(s)
    • NixOS
    • macOS
    • other Linux distributions
  • Tested via one or more NixOS test(s) if existing and applicable for the change (look inside nixos/tests)
  • Tested compilation of all pkgs that depend on this change using nix-shell -p nixpkgs-review --run "nixpkgs-review wip"
  • Tested execution of all binary files (usually in ./result/bin/)
  • Determined the impact on package closure size (by running nix path-info -S before and after)
  • Ensured that relevant documentation is up to date
  • Fits

Switches to a supported fork, updates patches as necessary

I'd be nice to ask upstream to make a release. (I personally don't like packaging unreleased software.)
