Hi Togan,
at the moment all screenshots are coming from debian, we are using the
debshots[1] server at For the future, we can check if it's worth
running our own debshots server,
or see if multi-distribution support gets added to debshots. We could also use
distromatch[2] to get the debian
package name, fetch the screenshot from and cache it on
our side.
That also depends on the debshots maintainers, if they are upset about the
traffic we create.

Are there other ideas for handling the screenshots?
