ipython notebook needs a desktop file

example desktop file
The ipython notebook IDE/shell should ship with a desktop file so that it becomes easily installable, discoverable and launchable from the desktop session.
What the package needs is:
a) .desktop file
b) application icon
c) appstream data file (http://www.freedesktop.org/software/appstream/docs/)
I added a .desktop file I made that works for me. That said it does leave a ipython process each time you run it, so I don't know if the package has some kind of automatic close on idle functionality that can be added.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 23 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 23. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora 'version'
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version.
Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not
able to fix it before Fedora 23 is end of life. If you would still like
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version
of Fedora, you are encouraged change the 'version' to a later Fedora
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
This applies also to python3-ipython-gui, it should have a graphical entry of some kind too.
The never happening shutdown is a blocker for this. Maybe if we start the app with Terminal=true and let the user end it form there? But that's not so user friendly.

Fixed in http://pkgs.fedoraproject.org/cgit/rpms/python-qtconsole.git/tree/python-qtconsole.spec#n131
Can we close this then?

Nope, this is not fixed for python-notebook.
I guess I'll start with the terminal=True option and we can improve later.
Also, packaging https://github.com/takluyver/nbopen might be a good idea.
