Re: AppStream issues with various KDE applications




(sorry for the top post, my phone refuses to let me do an inline reply)

It is worth noting that the KDE CI checks metainfo files and will complain on issues - so if you don't see something there, maybe a fix needs to be backported.

@hughsie: I am wondering for some time now whether we should make the name and summary tags essential for desktop-application type components in metainfo files as well. This would make validation a bit more failsafe and result in more complete metainfo files. I might raise this at the AppStream ML for comments this week...

Yes and no. We also do a daily rawhide build of the metadata,
predicatively available at
https://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/alt/screenshots/f26/failed.html from
that you can check the actual build logs of the component here:
https://github.com/hughsie/createrepo_as_logs/blob/master/k/kjots.log

So in the case of kjots it does indeed look like the issue has been
fixed upstream, but either one of two things has happened:

* The fix was not backported in to the stable release we use in Fedora 25
* We've not updated to the fixed version (yet?) in Fedora 25

I'm happy to poke the required people if it's the second point. And in
answer to your question: no, the package version isn't available in
the logs. I'll go add that now.

Richard.
