I'm the Fedora maintainer for lingot. I've written up an appdata
file for lingot so it can be part of gnome-software in a more
complete manner. Please find it attached. I'm going to update the Fedora
package to include this file sometime this week so that it's picked up
by gnome-software for Fedora 20.

It'll be great if this file can be included in future releases, and
optionally, if the build system could install it to /usr/share/appdata.
The installation isn't necessary, since us maintainers can do it
manually too.

Please feel free to edit the file to improve the descriptions, add more screenshots etc. The screenshots must be 16:9 in aspect ratio though. Here's a post explaining how to make such screenshots:

More information on appdata files:

There are a few issues with the appdata file. Can you please generate screenshots and upload them to a static location for this purpose?

[asinha@ankur-laptop lingot(master %=)]$ appdata-validate lingot.appdata.xml
lingot.appdata.xml 3 problems detected:
• attribute invalid : <screenshot> height was too small
• attribute invalid : <screenshot> width was too small
• style invalid : <li> cannot end in '.'
