First of all, thank you all of you who've helped publishing Qreator,
having an app for the first time in the Software Center is just awesome!

Following up on Allison's comment on keeping an eye on the icon
metadata, I thought I'd point out a couple of things I've noticed:

* There are neither icons nor screenshots on
https://apps.ubuntu.com/cat/applications/qreator/ - Anthony, do you know
why this might be happening?

* While I submitted all icon sizes on the myapps submission page [1],
the icon that appears on the Qreator page on the Software Centre is
scaled up and very much pixelated, so it seems the 128px icon (I think?)
was not picked up by the Software Center - Michael, do you have any
ideas why this might have happened?

* Data from extras.u.c is imported once a day at midnight into
apps.ubuntu.com. Qreator was published after that point in time and thus
it was almost a day until it appeared in apps.ubuntu.com. I think this
is unnecessary delay that could effectively disappear if both the copy
from the ARB's production PPA to extras and the import to apps.u.c were
synced and these operations would be more frequent
  - ARB, how often does the sync from the production PPA to extras
happen, and could it be moved to 23:00 UTC or any other sensible time
before apps.u.c imports the extras data? Would it make sense to do
multiple syncs a day?
  - Anthony, do you think it might be worth doing more extras imports
than just once a day?

Let me know if any of these constitute a bug, and I'll be happy to file it.

I hope this feedback is useful and keep the apps coming, thanks!
