And it forgets to remind to write a ChangeLog entry, and commit
everything ese... it just says what new files need to be added and which

Of course, it wouldn't be hard to say, which files need to be comitted.
The best way would be to write everything to a script, which user can
look at and run later.

It assumes is correct, i.e. .desktop files are installed and
distributed correctly. It cannot write to what it doesn't
know. Changing of Makefiles is a weakest part of script, you should
always check, if everything is correct.

P.S. Karl, of course you can commit that simple typo.
