We've been looking at the AppStream extractor issues in Fedora, and
we've come across a few broken XFCE applications. Broken apps are not

apps include:

* xfce4-power-manager
* xfpanel-switch

you can restrict this list to XFCE apps by clicking the [x] button
next to the "XFCE" header.

If you want any suggestions or advice, I'm happy to help. Most of the
failures are pretty self explanatory, e.g. "No <summary> in AppData"
or "icon was too small 32x32" -- our guidelines are here:

As a reminder, you can validate AppData files using: appstream-util
validate-relax file.appdata.xml
