I checked with upstream of Amfora and the xdg-trash binary is not used.
Looking around elsewhere I didn't see it in use anywhere either so
I think it's safe to not package the binary.

I've made a few changes (fixing up changelog, adding metadata) and
re-pushed xdg to mentors and salsa if you could please review.
