First, apologies for the direct email. I'm emailing you directly as you've been
listed as the update contact in one or more AppData files. In the software center we allow
the user to search using case-insensitive keywords, for instance searching for
'excel' could match Libreoffice Calc or many other free software spreadsheet
applications. At the moment we use the translated keywords set in the desktop file, any
extra <keyword> entries in the AppData file, and then fall back to generating tokens
from the name, summary and description using a heuristic. This heuristic works most of the
time, but a human can often do much better when we know what the most important words are.
I've noticed your application does not have any manually set keywords and thought I
should bring this to your attention.
So, what do I want you to do? Basically, I would like you to add some keywords in the
gnome-abrt.desktop file or the gnome-abrt.appdata.xml AppData file. If you want the
keywords to be used by GNOME Shell as well (which you probably do), the best place to put
any search terms is in the keywords section  of the desktop file. This can also be
marked as translatable so non-English users can search in their own language. This would
looks something like Keywords=3D;printer; (remember the trailing semicolon!)
The alternative is to put the keywords in the AppData file so that they are only used by
the software center and not the desktop shell. You can of course combine putting keywords
in both places. The AppData keywords can also be translated, and would look like this:
Of course, you don't have to do a release with this fix straight away, and if you have
a stable branch it would be a good thing to backport this as well if it does not add
translated strings or you have no string freeze policy. Nothing bad will happen if you
ignore this email, but please be aware that matches from keywords are ordered higher in
the search results than other partial matches from the name or summary. You also don't
have to add keywords that are the same as the application name or package name, as these
are automatically added as case insensitive search tokens.
When you've changed the file(s) and committed, please email me back and I'll mark
your application as completed. If you don't want to hear from me ever again just edit
the <update_contact> in the AppData file and change it to somebody else. I'm not
planning on emailing more than once every 6 months, so don't worry about me spamming
you with even more work to do. If you don't add the keywords then your application
will still be visible in the various software centers, but it may be harder to find.
