Package: rosegarden
Version: 1:16.06-1
Severity: wishlist
Usertags: appstream-modalias


The rosegarden package is one of the packages in the Debian archive that
should be proposed for installation when a given hardware dongle is
inserted or available.  Thanks to the appstream system, this can now be
announced in a way other tools can use and act on.  I've written the
isenkram system to ask the current user if hardware specific packages
should be installed when a new dongle is installed or already present on
a machine, and isenkram now uses appstream as one source for hardware to
package mappings.

You can read more about this on my blog, 

Instructions on how to create the metadata XML file can be found in
<URL: >.  There is also
<URL: > with hints on how to set
up udev rules.

It would be great if you could add an appstream metainfo file to the
rosegarden package, with content similar to this:

  <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

This should suggest rosegarden when a MIDI audio device is available.

If there are other hardware ids or kernel modules also supported by the
package, please add those too. :)

Happy hacking
