Bug Description

Please consider writing and installing an AppData file with the application description and some screenshots, else Gweled looks really bad in the GNOME and KDE Software Centers. We'd love to showcase more applications, but without the extra data file we can't. See for details; thanks!

  <p>Gweled is a GTK+ version of a popular PalmOS/Windows/Java game called &#34;Bejeweled&#34;, originally written by Sebastien Delestaing. The aim of the game is to make alignment of 3 or more gems, both vertically or horizontally by swapping adjacent gems. The game ends when there are no possible moves left.</p>
Because of a bug in this version, to get sound working you must manually install the sdl-sound dev and/or esound-common. - Eric Sebasta

Yes, that looks fine, thanks. Be sure to install that into /usr/share/appdata when the other files are being installed --thanks.
