Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1294692
Octave installs www.octave.org-octave.desktop (instead of octave.desktop)
Last modified: 2016-01-04 12:54:01 EST
Octave installs "www.octave.org-octave.appdata.xml" and "www.octave.org-octave.desktop". Is this the intended behaviour? If so, why?
If it is, the various octave-<pkg> will need to patch their .metainfo.xml files which need to mention the .desktop file that they extend.
(So far only octave-symbolic has a metainfo.xml file but I was planning to patch some and start a discussion upstream for the others.)

These are the upstream names for the files. You should ask them.
Indeed it is not Fedora-specific.
It is supposed to be like that, [at least for now](http://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/octave-maintainers/2016-01/msg00004.html)
