[Fwd: Re: Gnome Icons, Gnome/KDE Menus need improvement]



We do need to fix this HIG vs. desktop entry spec issue. Historically
what we've done for Red Hat is just put what we want in Name and ignore
GenericName.

I am not quite comfortable changing the menu entry because it is implementation
specific how the actual shown label is constructed. Moreover, we use
freedesktop.org .desktop files to provide the menu entries, and so the canonical
specification to follow is the desktop entry specification, which says Name is
the app_name, and I'd say GenericName would correspond to app_function.
http://freedesktop.org/Standards/desktop-entry-spec/0.9.4/ar01s04.html


Until the ambiguities (and AFAICS even small conflicts) between the GNOME HIG
and desktop entry specifications are clarified, and there is a clear documented
way how to represent this information in .desktop files in Fedora stuff, I do
not want to go into the business of changing things. What would make sense to
me would be to construct the menu entry label like "Name GenericName" from the
.desktop entry fields. That would result in a mess if Name already contained
app_function.
