(see old page of kst at extragear.kde.org/apps/kst/, which is listed on
The plan is to forward to the respective page on the software catalog on
kde.org/applications. Seems kst currently has no such entry there, which is a

Please create a description file for kst using the template at
and send it to the kde-www at kde.org mailinglist, so it could be uploaded there
(unless you can even do it yourself). Please also tell which icon (file) to
use as official app icon there.
You can find the description files for other apps as reference at
Don't hesitate to ask any questions if you have some.
See below for respective context.
