Why doesn't ebuild use
from bitcoin source.
Now desktop file is autogenerated, which is not good for translations. Also it doesn't work on Wayland. Wayland expects desktop file to be properly named which for bitcoin-qt is bitcoin-qt.desktop and window and taskbar icon is taken from desktop file.
Should now be fixed in the bitcoin overlay (0.14.1-r1).

I tested this with 0.15.1. The icon is still not working on Wayland. Looks like bitcoin-qt now sets reverse domain too, so desktop file should be named
Can we change this?
Sounds like a bug in Wayland, unless you can point to some standard being violated.
Regardless, I don't see what it has to do with this now-fixed bug...
Also, no idea why you'd suggest renaming it to that. It has nothing to do with Bitcoin.org...
