Description Pierre Ossman cendio 2022-03-22 16:05:25 CET
Modern systems have started relying on metainfo¹ files for information about applications, rather than getting it from the package manager. Partially because it provides more information, partially because it is independent of the package manager.

Including such a file could make it easier for others when they want to package our client, and would give us better control of how things are presented.

The main info missing here is screenshots, changing summary.

It is unclear if a metainfo file could give us the possibility to add even more info.
