Registered by probono on 2010-12-07

elementary OS should recognize AppImages and treat them accordingly (e.g., display icons, ask user whether to make executable, register in the menus, etc.)

Whiteboard

We should overtake parts of that patch file into eBuild

A preliminary deb is available at http://portablelinuxapps.org/packages/deb/appimaged/ - hopefully it would just be a matter of having eBuild install that deb << elementary OS will not include deb files - only packages that are in the elementary desktop ppa.
