Package: gnome-shell-pomodoro
Version: 0.14.0-1
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

During pomodoro break, the volume of my system is changed too by the program.

For instance if I have set my system volume to 50%, gnome-pomodoro changes it
back to 100% during take-a-break notification.

Don't you think it'd be better if the program synchronizes with the system
100% volume is too loud.

Sorry for the late reply.
I thought I already answered that report but it seems it's just that I
replied to another one that was saying the exact same thing,
I'm not sure there's a fix for it. Just a workaround (I know it's not
ideal but I don't have enough knowledge of Vala to propose a fix).
