my god i brought an cynical example what upstream may write
in the changelog and i doubt that you people are that
hypersensitive about every single word in real life too

if nobody asked for that then Richard better had just only
posted that link and not written it word by word so people
don't care at all for a grpical installer would have ignored it

"or apps that haven't had an upstream release in 5 years"
is part of the mail i responded to *word by word* - no idea
where that leaves space for interpretation independent how
often quotes are stripped to lose context

There's actually a whole load of reasons why we'd blacklist
applications: https://github.com/hughsie/appstream-glib#guidelines-for-applications
for instance programs that identify themselves as "settings" or apps
that haven't had an upstream release in 5 years
