Please consider writing and installing an AppData file with the application description and some screenshots, else yoshimi looks really bad in the GNOME and KDE Software Centers. We'd love to showcase more applications, but without the extra data file we can't. See http://people.freedesktop.org/~hughsient/appdata/ for details; thanks!

    Hi,

    We're in the process of producing an AppData file as you suggested but are at a
    loss as to where it should be placed in the release tarball, or indeed anywhere
    else!

    Say you have a poem and I have a tune.
    Exchange them and we can both have a poem, a tune, and a song.

    Awesome, thanks. It doesn't matter where in the tarball you include the file, but it has to be installed into /usr/share/appdata -- just like the desktop file is installed into /usr/share/applications

      Still not quite clear on this. For 'home builders' Yoshimi is configured to
      install to /usr/local/ rather than /usr/

      Am I right in thinking it is up to the packagers for debian, ubuntu etc. to
      modify this? Will the appdata system still find files in 'local' (most other
      things seem to) ?

    Yes, /usr/local is probably fine for home-builders, the distros will redefine datadir to be /usr, and that's what the extraction tools all use. Thanks!
