In the update to version 0.23.4 today, shotwell brought with it a second launcher entry for me in Gnome shell. Further, it seems like upon install it has a shotwell.desktop file and a shotwell-viewer.desktop file, both of which seem to do the same thing, as both have the same EXEC line.

This is most likely an oversight, can one of these .desktop files be removed?
This task depends upon

Hi. That was an error caused by the build system transition. It has been fixed in git master for the next release.
