Created attachment 922622 [details]

Description of problem:
emacs is not displayed in gnome-software as nicely as it deserves.

Please find the attached appdata file. I think it can serve as the reasonable first version.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Comment 1 Petr Hracek 2014-11-18 12:52:53 UTC
Thanks for your appdata file.
One question, I would like to include official text from http://www.gnu.org/software/emacs/

Could you please let me know where did you get the text from?

> Could you please let me know where did you get the text from?
I wrote it myself ;). Feel free to replace/modify it in any way.

But upstream added an appdata file in the meantime:
https://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/emacs-diffs/2014-08/msg00177.html .

I think that my version is better... I tried to make it intellibigble
for a person who does not know emacs already, so I didn't concentrate
on lisp and customization, but tried to talk more about built-in useful

I guess one option would be submit a patch to extend the description
upstream, including the screenshots. I'll send the patch if you think
it's useful.


Comment 3 Petr Hracek 2014-11-18 13:44:07 UTC
Yeah, it would be nice.

You are right, your version is better and more understandable.
You can also send the patch to the upstream.

I will build the emacs with your version, though.
