extra application's desktop file doesn't pass desktop-file-validate
Open, Incoming QueuePublic


When installing Extra application (, it complains about an error in /usr/share/applications/extra.desktop. The error is:
"error: value "0.0.1" for key "Version" in group "Desktop Entry" is not a known version"

and it comes from desktop-file-validate tool that many package managers run while installing .desktop files. Here's about .desktop file specification:
"Version of the Desktop Entry Specification that the desktop entry conforms with. Entries that confirm with this version of the specification should use 1.0. Note that the version field is not required to be present. "

It's easily 'fixable' by running "sed -i '/Version=/d' data/desktop/extra.desktop*" but I thought it should be reported as well. The -git version seems to be affected too.
