Ah yes, the menu specification requires the use of an xpm icon.

The extended lintian description refers to the related documentation:


It's a bit unfortunate, but required for policy compliance at this time.

I suggest to convert the png icon to xpm and install that for policy
compliance. Since the package also installs a .desktop file this can use
the png icon and even svg.

QGIS for instance contains qgis-icon.xpm in the debian directory which
is converted from the SVG in the upstream source, from that SVG icon the
PNG icons for the various sizes are generated too.

The XPM icon is only used in the menu entry for policy compliance. Most
desktops use the .desktop file for which the PNG and SVG icons are used.
The various sized PNG icons are only for those desktops that lack SVG

Right, sorry about that. I forgot to configure git-multimail:

sebastic-guest@moszumanska:/git/pkg-grass/qmapshack.git$ git config
multimailhook.mailinglist pkg-grass-devel@lists.alioth.debian.org

The other git-multimail configuration was automatically added by the
git-commit-notice script.
