I'm not sure this is the best mailing list to discuss this issue. Feel

We have a set of screenshots accessible via URLs like
<https://hub.libreoffice.org/screenshots/writer-01.png> that are
referenced from our AppData files (see the various
sysui/desktop/appstream-appdata/libreoffice-*.appdata.xml sources, and
solenv/bin/assemble-flatpak.sh generating a single such file for the
Now, building LO 6.2.4 Flatpak on Flathub failed because Flathub started
to sport a new check that verifies that such AppData screenshots have a
16:9 aspect ratio. I'm totally clueless as to how much sense such a
check makes and whether it will continue to prevent us from providing an
updated LO on Flathub, see the mail thread I started at
"Run strict validation on AppData file" for details.
But in case we'll be forced to indeed provide 16:9 screenshots, I'd like
to already clarify who'll be able to do that. And whether those files
would replace the existing
<https://hub.libreoffice.org/screenshots/*.png> or would get fresh URLs.
The set of such .png files referenced from (current master)
sysui/desktop/appstream-appdata/libreoffice-*.appdata.xml sources is
of which the Flatpak AppData file references only the five *-01.png. So
it would be great if at a minimum those five could be provided as 16:9
if it turns out there's indeed need for that.
