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:

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