Hello, wasn’t sure where or who to ask about this, but I recently had a report done for the Slack Flatpak, and had some questions about some of the failures.
No baked-in shadows: The icon was recently updated to redact the shadows, not sure why this is still failing?
Shorter than 35 characters: Not so much a question, but just wanted to highlight this is the official summary used by Slack on their existing channels of distribution.
No weird formatting or punctuation: Ditto
Screenshots taken on Linux: The screenshot provided is the official screenshot from Slack for the Linux client (Linux | Downloads | Slack). Though, it’s more of a render in fairness. Was that the reason it failed? How can we provide a screenshot on Linux without it just being the default sign in page? I wouldn’t want to use any of the workspaces I use personally to be in the screenshot.
Icons need a few to get updated everywhere due to caching. So I wasn’t 100% sure it updated already.
It’s a hard coded check right now, so if it’s longer, we can’t do anything about it
I don’t think we care, we’re just tagging, what has good quality
Yes, we would like to see the real app, with window shadows and decorations. So that it matches how it would look similar to how it looks when users actually install it.
I would think setting up a dummy/test account and maybe use some “public” slack space (I know of community/slack from the top of my head) to create screenshots.
I’m using the gnome & gnome:dark environment bits, don’t know if Flathub can take advantage though.
Also not sure how I can merge this commit with the link pointing to images that don’t exist. I want it to reference them from the repo but doesn’t seem like I can do that without merging screenshots, then creating a separate PR for the metainfo update.
Fixed the screenshots to be not full screen, and removed the message screenshot outright.
Question about a new summary, would “Business Communication” violate the current guidelines? I was trying to find an official summary used by Slack that didn’t go over 35 characters, and that was the only one (Slack on the App Store).
