Any advantage over gnome-multiwriter? I've heard even from Martin Wimpress I believe, that Etcher is great for Windows but a pig to package on Linux.

I am not sure if gnome-multiwriter does validate the images after the burn, or if it can write sd cards.

This is exactly what I didn't want - the priority system is already being abused. Please don't touch it :/

I actually did it by accident, while i was playing around phabricator to learn it. I am sorry :(

It's a general statement to the wider audience :P You put it to Low, people who fully abuse it set to critical and high, the old BTS is full of critical security bugs for adding electron apps xD

I haven't had time to nail down the permissions yet but the basic process will be bugs start off In Triage and only the Triage Team can edit things

ikey raised the priority of this task from Low to Needs Triage.Aug 3 2016, 4:52 PM

I use it and it works very well. It doesn't need packaging. You just have to download it , make it executable and it works out of the box. Instructions are on the site.

The benefit is it supports a more extensive set of images as opposed GNOME Multiwriter which just supports ISOs.

I am still trying to get this application built, I realized something was wrong with what I put originally.

I have been busy and not able to work on it.

Thank you @joebonrichie for getting this in.

I have just been so busy lately I did not get a chance to work on my inclusion anymore.
