Thanks so much!

I've committed [1] with a few changes:

* Relicensed to CC BY-SA, since
deja-dup translations are in CC BY-SA, and eventually this should be

I wasn't sure when I read on the Google doc the following sentence: "All this data must be releasable under a CC0 licence, i.e. BSDish." I asked to hughsie about this, which confirmed it was a mistake, CC BY-SA, as a free licence, is fine. I fixed the Google doc and added the url of deja-dup's appdata.xml[0].

* Added a field with "Déjà Dup Backup Tool". Once
installed, I like Deja Dup to appear "part of the system" by just
representing as "Backup". But when browsing an app store, it should use
its full branding to differentiate from other backup software.

* Dropped
the screenshots link. The examples of appdata files I have seen all link
to specific images (so that they can be sucked down and shown), not a
page of screenshots. And all the specific screenshot URLs I have for Deja Dup aren't pretty / stable-looking URLs. There are attachments to wiki pages or [7] links... I'm not sure where a good
hosting place for screenshots would be. Any ideas?

For screenshots, I think a good place is where launchpad stores tarballs[1]. Having the release number in the screenshot url helps to have a match between the screenshots and the actual interface.

Finally, Appdata may indeed *later* include tags for screenshots, like this: <screenshot type=default desktop=gnome>. That's not the case for now to avoid to overwhelm people at this early stage.

Thanks again!
