How can I provide a special image for the screenshot on that page ?

Hi,

We "share" database with Debian on screenshots.debian.net.

Well strictly, we're not "sharing", but "using" their database.

There's no way to upload from openSUSE side.

So here're the limitations you may need to pay attention to:

1. The screenshot should obey Debian's standard, the most important
part here is:

You have to upload screenshots taken under Debian or vanilla
screenshots (no openSUSE specific stuff like skins, logos...)

If there's difference between versions, Debian's current version will
be in charge.

2. You can only upload screenshots for those packages that both exist
on Debian and openSUSE.

Thanks for your explanation.

However, I ask myself: wouldn't it be advantageous for software.opensuse.org -
better: for openSuse
alltogether, to have the software download web pages showing/searching the apps
1.) categorized (like in the start menu, e.g. Games, Office, Internet, ...)
2.) having screenshots where possible
3.) improve the search capability. e.g. "create DVD" or "burn DVD" finds nothing

something like an "app store" so that even a novice user can simply *find*
applications.
Currently you need to know the name of a package, which is usually unknown to a
novice user.

For the screenshots openSuse should therefore have its own repository of image
files.
Why not simply allow a special file to be put into an OBS project-package, e.g.
thumbnail.png
I assume it shouldn't be too hard to automatically import all currently
existing images from
the Debian database.

See also how e.g. kde-apps.org does it.
