Okay, so that's probably something we need to do something about.
Would more frequent blogging help or hinder this?

They are the same thing, no?

So, at the moment the only way that F22 and F21 differ is that F22
requires a minimum icon size of 48px, and f21 requires 32px. Most
actively maintained packages (especially the kind of ones you
maintain) easily meet this requirement. Would a generated HTML page

pkgname,fasname,application-id,green/red for F21, green/red for F22?

be a useful thing to do?

Doesn't dumping the updated AppData file in /usr/share/appdata work?
