Would you consider adding the patch (patch on mailing list) to disable PTI on AMD processors? It has already been merged to master (kernel commit) and AMD not being affected by meltdown seems to be a accepted fact now (google research backs this claim: google blog; variant 1 and variant 2, which AMD is vulnerable to are not mitigated by PTI).

Well actually, drop it. When someday the qt-stack is updated, there will be a way better solution to this problem. I didn't know new qt5 could do that when I was opening this request. I just tried the budgie global appmenu ikey added to the repos and was annoyed by the fact that the qt applications didn't comply.

On further investigation Qt5 would need to be updated to at least 5.7 to get a global menu to work, but qt4 still needs this.

Technically, it is LGPL-2.0 while "Lesser GNU public license" is LGPL-3.0
Library GNU public license was LGPL. LGPL was then changed to lesser gnu public license, so this is the old version of the LGPL license. Should this be noted in the package.yml?

Ah, thats a fail. Third try:

So, I investigated a bit about the situation of Dwarf Fortress for example in Arch Linux and i have a few problems to give to note:
Dwarf Fortress in Solus Repos would be cool! I found relevant copyright information in "readme.txt" in their downloadable gamefiles:
About license: tumbler is a LGPL'd library and a GPL2'd daemon. See https://bugzilla.xfce.org/show_bug.cgi?id=6781 for clarification of devs, the files listed in this bug report also contain the LGPL notice in the current version of tumbler.

I know that, and i didn't want to cause any confusion. I just uploaded it, because i made it anyways for personal purposes. If you want less clutter in phabricator i will respect that in future.

Another question regarding package policy: since thumbnailing is a pretty basic, but not neccesary feature of a file manager, would it make sense to add tumbler to pantheon-files dependencies?
Just for clearance: the reason i requested/packaged it, is because pantheon-files has been accepted, and it would be nice to have thumbnails in pantheon-files. As this is in no way tied to pantheon-files or anything xfce related (it just comes from the xfce project), has sane dependencies and doesn't get updated all too much (see it as a finished protuct), i hoped for this to be accepted easily, but i understand if you see the use case as too small :)
Never said that, don't need it :D tumbler, as said, has no xfce deps and i just wanted to include is as example use case. I do not intend to request/package ristretto. Feel free to ignore it.

Pantheon-Files had a Release including my Patch. I updated the package.yml, this time without extra patches:

My "workaround" has been accepted upstream. They will probably reimplement it in better ways later, because they are not using gtk probably. But with this merge pantheon-files works flawlessly on Solus (as it does with the attached patch in the solus package): https://code.launchpad.net/~bastiwuerl/pantheon-files/fix-black-icons
Edit: proper merge request link https://code.launchpad.net/~bastiwuerl/pantheon-files/fix-black-icons/+merge/317034

Here is version 3, i hope i got everything right this time...
Thanks for the feedback and for reconsidering.
Thanks for the tip on dependencies! I really appreciate the tools around solus packaging.
Pantheon-files is using some icons that can't be found in any Icon-theme besides elementary-icons. I added them as .svg to hicolor icon folder...
