This package has changed ownership in the Fedora Package Database.  Reassigning to the new owner of this component.

Can you provide more details on the problem you're reporting?

I can see that the git-gui.desktop file uses a .ico file for the Icon, but that file is what upstream provides, it's installed along with the package, and the icon shows up when I view the git-gui entry in Gnome.  So I'm not sure where there is a bug.
Comment 3 pstodulk 2016-07-01 05:26:49 EDT
Icon isn't showed with removed extension ".ico", so there should be used really whole path with whole filename. 

Maybe it's because git uses "non-standard" location instead of "/usr/share/icons/*", don't know which subdirectory should be used correctly and if it works. But as I see, I have more APP which uses own directory for icons, so I don't see benefit of moving the file.
