Bug Description

Even with the recent fixes to bamf, I can still be in cases where my webapp launcher does not associate correctly on the launcher.

It happens for no particular webapp. However it stops occuring as soon as I suppress the duplicate desktop file we generate in ~/.local/share/applications.

To be clear, the consequence of this fix is that we drop support for custom webapp actions for now, ie "compose new message". This API is not fully working right now anyway.

We will restore the custom actions at the system level first, to avoid the desktop file duplication whenever possible.

  [ Alexandre Abreu ]
  * Add some missing files striclty for doc generation for the runtime-
    api
  * There is currently an issue on Ubuntu Desktop with webapps running
    in the container and bamf/unity that when a local desktop file
    exists (and a webapp icon has been pinned to the launcher through
    its global /usr/share desktop file), the webapp icons are duplicated
    in the launcher. Various fixes have been made to mitigate the issue
    in bamf but it seems to still be around. This is voluntarily
    discarded for now and left around to get to the bottom of the issue
    in a timely fashion. (LP: #1300864)
