Description Simon 2021-06-12 10:07:49 UTC
The current version of the freedesktop specification is 1.5 but when using this value in a .desktop file a QA warning is shown saying

* QA Notice: This package installs one or more .desktop files that do not
 * pass validation.
 * 
 * 	/usr/share/applications/com.bitwig.BitwigStudio.desktop: error: value "1.5" for key "Version" in group "Desktop Entry" is not a known version
 * 

See https://specifications.freedesktop.org/desktop-entry-spec/latest/ar01s06.html for more info.

Reproducible: Always

This is not handled by eclasses, portage calls desktop-file-validate from desktop-file-utils.

$ desktop-file-validate test.desktop 
test.desktop: error: value "1.5" for key "Version" in group "Desktop Entry" is not a known version

Believe you should report this to desktop-file-utils upstream instead.

@Ionen Thanks! I wasn't aware of that.
I've created an upstream bugreport https://gitlab.freedesktop.org/xdg/desktop-file-utils/-/issues/59
