This is not what I'm pointing at. Yeah, the changelog wording is wrong,
but if instead of "fixes lintian warning" it said "obey new Policy",
the meaning stands.
Ie, instead of forcing migration to .desktop, you had someone take the
option of going a step back. Kind of warranted as GNUsteppy things don't
seem to work with .desktop yet, and it'd require some effort neither me nor
this package's maintainer have knowledge and tuits to rush for right now.
I did not sponsor this version, for a different reason, but I wonder if
following the unintended meaning of the Policy would't be the reasonable
thing to do.
