Bug Description

The desktop files with NoDisplay=true should be used by bamf to match applications, but they should have a lower priority than the displayable ones.

You should also file bugs against the distro if you want them to be counted as fixed by commits in auto release, especially within freeze periods.

Packaging-related fixes got approved by lool so I'm not worried about them, and the rest looks properly as bug fixes, so no reason to block the landing... (that was esp. about bug 1161430 which involves changes to the maintainer scripts)

Please be mindful of freeze periods and give us time to review merges before they land so we don't risk getting the packages rejected by archive admins. Feel free to ping me if you feel merges for bamf aren't being reviewed fast enough, in case I didn't see them or whatever, I can help with making sure things are reviewed in a timely manner.
