There is a bug report  that KiCAD doesn't show up in the GNOME
Software or KDE Discover managers. I ran desktop-file-validate on the kicad.desktop file
and got a hint that there is no registered main category.
That just means it's not going to show up in the category view.
Is this something that happens during a compose? How can I test to
see if my change is effective?
If you have the metainfo.xml file handy you can run "appstream-util
validate foo.xml" and if you only have the .rpm you can do
"appstream-builder --verbose *.rpm" and see what the log files say.
I hope that helps,
