The previous version I released fails to start with a RuntimeError.
Please try the new version. It is now tested on both my machines and
works on both.

 gnome-app-install (0.2.15-2) experimental; urgency=low
   * bug-fix release:
     - fixed datadir defined in /usr/bin/gnome-app-install so that the
       app will run on PCs other than mine
     - added new Recommends: yelp (Gnome help)

The church is near but the road is icy; the bar is far away but I will
walk carefully.
