how to deal with unreadable images

As discussed years ago [1], thumbnailers should not save "failed" thumbnails for unreadable images.

Comment 1 Vincent Untz 2012-05-11 06:50:26 UTC
Sounds good to me. Maybe just send a quick notice to xdg with the usual one week delay before commit?
Comment 2 Michael Chudobiak 2012-05-11 06:51:27 UTC
Thanks, RFC to mail list sent.
Comment 3 Michael Chudobiak 2012-05-22 05:49:51 UTC
No comments were made in response to the RFC on the mailing list, so I guess that counts as unanimous support.
