I'm not sure if this is the right place to ask, but I'm one of the maintainers of FeedReader, which already has this info. My question is if there's any guidance about how to handle browser-like apps. FeedReader itself has no advertising or adult content, but you could easily subscribe to gambling, porn and ad-heavy RSS feeds. I'm asking because I can find a generator but I can't actually find a spec for what the OARS options are.

Also, I went through the generator and it seems strange that it asked me about a lot of things but didn't ask about adult content. It seems like a weird thing not to include in content rating since it's probably the #1 thing most parents want.

I think that assumption is that you have no control over external content that can be loaded by your application, so technically it does not "ship" ads or gambling.

I agree that some special handling for browser-esque apps is needed, and that the generator should ask authors of non-game applications some (if not all) of the content questions. Tickets opened about both.

As I just checked: Darktable has a content rating already.

Here's a script to check which apps are outstanding: https://gist.github.com/wjt/9fc2230bdb4705413d5fa59b276d135a

Here is the complete list according to that script:

Perhaps @andrunko or a Flathub admin could update the issue description accordingly?

Or, since this is now enforced by the Flathub build infrastructure for app updates, perhaps instead we could file these 34 issues and resolve this?

@wjt I have updated the issue list, thanks! I also noticed that a lot of these apps have a common pattern, they are shipping a flathub.json with a "skip-appstream-check": true we should probably open an issue on all of these to get a fixed/updated appdata for these apps as well

It wasn't quite clear to me into what category "spaceships shooting at
each other" falls. Is it Cartoon Violence:

> Defined as fictional characters depicted in an animated film or a
> comic strip which do not look human.

After all, spaceships do not look human. Or is it Fantasy Violence:

> Defined as characters easily distinguishable from reality.

Spaceships are not what you normally think of when you hear "cartoon".
I went with the latter. I think the violence is moderate ("aggressive
conflict") rather than intense ("graphic violence") or mild ("unsafe
situations").
