Got this email from Richard Hughes in reference to https://blogs.gnome.org/hughsie/2015/10/12/star-ratings-in-gnome-software/ :
In future versions of the appstream-builder (the program used by distributions to merge all the AppData files in packages into AppStream metadata) we're going to be running a lot less crazy plugins. At the moment we're doing things like parsing .gir files, running nm on binaries and looking up things from arrays of hardcoded data just so we can try and work out what kudos the application deserves. This doesn't scale, and means the machine generating the metadata needs to have all kinds of extra build tools installed. So, what do I want you to do? Basically, I would like you to add the following data into pitivi.appdata.xml:
<kudos> <kudo>HiDpiIcon</kudo> <kudo>UserDocs</kudo> </kudos>
Attached is a patch that does that and a little bit more. Grab & push it if you agree: 0001-Add-kudos-into-appdata-files-for-GNOME-Software.patch
