Follow-up Comment #1, patch #8842 (project octave):

According to AppData specification,
https://people.freedesktop.org/~hughsient/appdata/ , the project_group tag
description is:

> If you include the <project_group> tag then this identifies your project
with a specific upstream umbrella project. Known values include GNOME, KDE,
XFCE, MATE and LXDE, although other umbrella projects like Yorba would make
sense too.
> NOTE:You should only identify with an umbrella project if you use all their
infrastructure and policies, for instance string freezes dates, bugtracker and
source control instance.

So our AppData file seems correct according to the specifications. GNU is not
a desktop environment but that's not what this tag seems to be for.

It seems to me a bit silly that gnome software has a list of valid projects
and would ignore all others. At least that's what I gathered from the comments
at the redhat tracker you linked
