STEPS TO REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM:
1) Go to Maemo 5 downloads catalogue.
A shiny, user-facing experience is had where they are impressed with the amount
of high-quality software available.
User sees a large number of placeholder images, making maemo.org and software
for Maemo look half-finished.
I wouldn't say the applications shouldn't be visible at all, but just not on
the front page. Similarly, the promotion email from Extras-testing should
include a direct link to the new entry editing page and a reminder that the
maintainer should go and attach a screenshot ASAP.
Finding a meta-way of distributing a single screenshot would also be good, to
avoid everyone fighting with #4383. This would also mean the race condition was
Perhaps a control-file field: `XB-Maemo-Screenshot: http://.......' ?

Current view of Maemo 5 downloads
Also texts should be trimmed.
This should be handled together with #5788
I thought this had been fixed, but that's not reflected here. Currently
http://maemo.org/downloads/Maemo5/ looks shit with appdownloader and
AutoDisconnect both being prominently displayed with no screenshot.
