Re: Application category in desktop files


This is a very nice and simple idea for Gnome Goals. Also, nice as a
GNOME Love activity. It's a pity the idea came after code freeze.

I recently discovered that "Application" isn't a valid category in the
desktop specification, despite being used in most desktop files:

ross blackadder /usr/share/applications
$ grep Categories *.desktop | grep Application | wc -l

Should there be a GnomeLove mission to clean up the categories field in
every desktop file?  Removing Application, adding GNOME, adding
OnlyShowIn as relevant, making sure as many categories are possible are
specified, and so on.
