[pkg-wine-party] Bug#848839: wine: Doesn't show in Software app, missing appstream metadata

Package: wine
Version: 1.8.5-1

The next version of Debian will ship gnome-software by default in the
GNOME version. Currently, wine does not show in the Software app if it
is not already installed.

When I look at the 1.8.5-1 package, I don't see a .desktop (except for
one you have stored in the examples directory). As for gnome-software,
I don't know whether a .desktop is necessary. The preferred metadata
is appstream metadata and I think the .desktop is just used as a
minimal substitute if there is not appstream metadata present. (I
tried looking earlier and it was very difficult for me to try to find
an app that did not have a .desktop that showed in gnome-software.)

For more info about creating the appstream metadata, see
