I'm a bit confused by this. For emacs the output is:

emacs 	  	   emacs    OK 	    OK 	  OK		OK	Warning		OK
emacsclient 	   emacs    OK 	Warning   Warning 	OK	Warning		Failed

But emacsclient does not have an appdata file at all. It something wrong
with its .desktop file?

For zaz:

zaz	zaz	OK	OK	OK	Failed	Warning		Failed

The appdata file passed appdata-validate test a few weeks ago. Is this
things about missing icons something new or is this a false positive?

Good to know. This wasn't obvious.
