I just updated my PinePhone (Mobian/Phosh) and noticed an update for appstreamcli in the list. I thought it very strange that Amazon remote desktop/cloud services would be updating… since I didn’t install it.
Is AppStream installed by default on the Librem 5?
Can any of you smart people conceive of a logical reason that AppStream be installed on a phone?
Appstream is a standard of how metadata that applications provide about themselves is structured.
It is basically what allows an app info to be processed by all the different linux app stores: gnome software, elementary shop, forgot the name of the manjaro thing, e.g: is the app adaptive or not, license info, name, project URL, etc.
I was not aware of Amazon AppStream before reading this thread either.
Made no sense at all to me why the top post mentioned Amazon, I assumed that I was missing something so had to Google to understand what the post was about.
