Just needs an icon and .desktop file, otherwise seems fine for inclusion.

Need to determine permissions after installation. Readme states that it needs write access to install location.

Permissions that I'd have to change to get the application to work if installed into /opt/saleae-logic:

/opt/saleae-logic: 757
/opt/saleae-logic/Settings: 777
/opt/saleae-logic/Databases: 777

This is unacceptable. I've emailed Saleae asking about required permissions for the application to operate properly and also about the possibility of having caching and settings use the appropriate user folders (.cache and .config). I'll post back when I get a reply from them with possible alternatives.

In light of the fact that the Saleae devices are supporting by sigrok, I see no reason why we would take on maintaining a Snap or Flatpak for this.
