Description Peter Oliver 2017-02-10 19:14:28 UTC
Created attachment 1249122 [details]
Add icons, .desktop, and appdata files.

I'd like to be able to set Alpine as the default mail application in Gnome, so that it'll open when I click on a "mailto:" link.  The attached patch enables that.

I've had this patch kicking around for a while.  I originally tried to get it upstream, but as far as I remember I didn't hear back.

Any references to upsream reports?  I think I still have commit access there, so could help move things along

There doesn't seem to be any bugtracker at http://patches.freeiz.com/alpine/, so I reported it by email:

Dear Peter,

  I forwarded your patch to Alpine distributors, but have not heard from them.
I wanted to have a feeling if this is something they wanted/needed.
I am still waiting for their reply. I will keep you posted.

  Thank you!

This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 26 development cycle.
Changing version to '26'.
