You are right, it's probably safer to link to the package page. I
changed it.

Cool! I was wondering, though: Bluetile is pretty much intended to be
used with a desktop environment. The way it is set up now, selecting the
new option in GDM starts Bluetile standalone.
Maybe it could be changed to start GNOME + Bluetile? I'm just not sure
how to handle dependencies then. I don't know if Bluetile should depend
on all of GNOME - but maybe it can be just one of those lower
'recommendations' or what they are called?

Indeed, it's more like a wishlist item.
