Description Jiri Eischmann 2015-12-27 19:43:25 UTC
Created attachment 1109854 [details]

The package doesn't ship AppStream [1] metadata file, so it doesn't appear in Pidgin profile in the default app catalog GNOME Software and is not easily discoverable and installable for users.

I've already filed a bug upstream [2] because it should be ideally included there since it's used across Linux distributions, but unless/until upstream ships it it should be included downstream as the packaging guidelines say [3].

I've created the file for you, see the attachment.

Probably I think updatecontact is myself and id is purple-line

Comment 2 fujiwara 2016-01-04 10:08:23 UTC
And the file name is purple-line.metainfo.xml

Comment 3 fujiwara 2016-01-26 04:56:16 UTC
Seems update_contact instead of updatecontact
