Description Fabio Valentini 2017-01-12 16:15:02 UTC
Spec URL:


Description: Get apps for elementary OS / the Pantheon desktop. AppCenter is a native Gtk+ app store built on AppStream and Packagekit.

Fedora Account System Username: decathorpe

koji scratch build for rawhide:

COPR build for rawhide and f25:

Comment on the occurring "wrong-fsf-address" rpmlint errors:
This has been reported upstream at .
