Hey Michael, did you sent the fix upstream? I normally do that for external contributor but I think we should show the lead there (if you did so, you should state it either in the merge req or link the upstream bug tracker in the bug report)

btw, repeating the same information I did on other merge requests:

thanks for your contribution to ubuntu and for this merge requests :)

Some notes about it:
- we normally comment the changes in the debian/changelog file. For that, we are using debchange -i and write something like:
- move the .desktop file change into something the patch system of the package can deal with is something which might interest you in this regard. This is the end result:

Thank you for your work

Setting to "Work in progress" please set back to "Needs review" when you update so it shows again on the sponsoring list

Didn't we agree to not patch universe softwares this cycle?

Your patch upstream needs to be updated as well:
- to use the current spec format
- the most recent patch on drop the list but keep the TargetEnvironment?
- you need to prefix Name with a _, i.e "_Name=" to be translatable

Add details to patch file, add LP bug # to changelog

We agreed not to patch Quicklists, because their strings were exposed to the user, and a lack of translation would be noticeable. Keywords are not displayed, only used in searches, so a lack of translation wouldn't have any effect.

Seems fine to me, thanks! Will merge with the changelog typo fixed (LP bug ref) and fixing the patch headers for DEP-3.
