Why is Xubuntu 18.04.4 "Do not use"?

Post by SandJ » Wed Apr 29, 2020 12:23 pm

I submitted two test reports, both for Xubuntu 18.04.4 which is a current LTS for Xubuntu. I got an email:
Subject: [AppDB] Submitted operating system deleted

Submitted operating system deleted
The operating system you submitted (Xubuntu 18.04.4) has been deleted.

Reasons given
This entry was merged with an existing one, which can be found at
https://appdb.winehq.org/objectManager. ... stribution
Clicking on that link takes me to: "Operating system name: zz Do not use" and 'Test Results for zz Do not use'

Did I do something wrong, or shouldn't I be using WINE with Xubuntu?

Apparently you tried to submit Xubuntu as a new distro version. It isn't; Ubuntu derivatives are all grouped together under Ubuntu, and that's what you should select when submitting test reports for Xubuntu. As for the "Do not use," that's just an admittedly cludgy way to deal with incorrect versions, as the current system does not allow them to simply be deleted (they have to be merged).
