Re: Menu Policy - please read if you maintain a package with a .desktop file in it!



Sorry for my poor english.

What i want seem "simple" to me.
I want a flag per Program :
Extra_flag : true|false
The default is set by RedHat/Fedora.

No "real" menu editing.

If Extra_flag is set to "true", the program is placed in an extra menu.

The extra menu can be like the one RH8.0 provided.

Extra menu can also be an entry at the top of the Gnome menu.

Exemple for system-config-bind and gucharmap (in French here).
system-config-bind : Extra_flag = false
gucharmap : Extra_flag = false
- gnome menu
	- accessoires
		- Calculatrice
		- Table de caractÃres (gucharmap)
        - paramÃtres systÃme
                - paramÃtres de serveur
                	- service de nom de domaine (system-config-bind)
                - Ãcran de connexion

Now suppose "Extra_flag = true" for system-config-bind and gucharmap :
- gnome menu
	- accessoires
		- Calculatrice
        - paramÃtres systÃme
                - Ãcran de connexion
	- extra
		- accessoires
			- Table de caractÃres
        	- paramÃtres systÃme
                        - paramÃtres de serveur
                        	- service de nom de domaine

Or with the layout of RH8.0
- gnome menu
	- accessoires
		- Calculatrice
		- extra
        		- Table de caractÃres
        - paramÃtres systÃme
                - paramÃtres de serveur
                	- extra
                        	- service de nom de domaine
                - Ãcran de connection

The extra_flag can be set by a contextual menu :
- "move to extra menu"
- "move to main menu"
