Yes, I have found how to add this file, thanks.

I you really want this to succeeds and to be adopted by application
upstream, we need to provides "really" simple documentation.
(I'm tired to heard about some new fedora specific and complex
request... even if this is not true, this is a common upstream feeling)

And sorry, but this is not "yet" the case.
(especially for ex. for a QT app which doesn't use gettext or autotool)

Just to confirm: this new file is only useful on fedora >= 20 ?
(so we need to not ship it in fedora < 20, perhaps some Guildelines
about this could be useful)

Which package own /usr/share/appdata ?


P.S. new version 0.3RC of qelectrotech in rawhide have this file,
added by upstream on my proposal.
