Summary0002246: Provide a desktop file for netsurf-gtk
DescriptionNetSurf doesn't have an XDG desktop entry file. In practice, this means that downstream packagers either:

- copy Debian's local netsurf-gtk.desktop,
- autogenerate another one, or
- provide no desktop integration.

This is probably less than ideal; it would be better to include a netsurf-gtk.desktop file in the main netsurf repository.

Debian's desktop file is attached.
TagsNo tags attached.
