The initial idea of the app pages was to have a quick overview of all
relevant facts for a given application and make it easily
maintainable, as those pages are generated from plain json files, see
e.g. http://websvn.kde.org/trunk/www/sites/www/applications/apps/dolphin.json?view=markup
for the dolphin file.

Even more, it was intended to automate the task of updating those
information. Sadly, it never got this far (yet?). Of course, open for
suggestions to improve this situation.
