[Bug 1754470] Re: Stop converting apt:<package> links to apps.ubuntu.com


I asked Jeremy Bicha if he is aware of any other way but simply dropping
the conversion, but he isn't.


So my conclusion is that we start showing href="apt:<package>" also on
the HTML pages.

It's worth noticing that equivalent links in upstream gnome-user-docs is
of the format action="install:<package>". Since that format doesn't work
on Ubuntu, at least not currently, we convert such links to our
preferred format when building the gnome-user-docs package.

  Stop converting apt:<package> links to apps.ubuntu.com

Status in Online publishing of the Ubuntu documentation:
Status in ubuntu-docs package in Ubuntu:
  Fix Released

Bug description:
  apps.ubuntu.com previously offered a convenient web interface to the
  Ubuntu package repositories. When building the HTML version of the
  desktop guide, we have therefore converted apt:<package> links to
  equivalent apps.ubuntu.com links.

  However, apps.ubuntu.com now redirects to snapcraft.io/store, so those
  converted links are broken.
