Cheese 3.15.2 released

The second unstable release in the 3.15 development series.

what is it?
Take photos and videos with your webcam, with fun graphical effects

what's changed in 3.15.2?
- Fix Nepali desktop file keywords translation
- Add name and summary elements to AppData
  Pacify appstream-util validate.
- Limit default size for avatar cropping
  Commit c605ad3578ff66452bd7b01d257f31c64e7905ef enlarged default size 
  for cropping avatars thus crop rectangle could be easily bigger then 
  image. The crop rectagle can't be modified and cc_crop_area_get_picture 
  causes errors if the rectangle is bigger, because it has negative 
  coordinates. Limit the default size to fit the image also.
- Added/Updated Translations
