      Description

      In V3 TP2, the Applications entry on the Gnome desktop for V3 installations
      appear at the top level just below Applications. This approach is
      unconventional on Gnome desktops where the norm is to either reuse or introduce
      general categories at the top level and then populate more specific entries
      under the general category. Gnome users will not stand for seeing the top level
      of the Applications menu polluted with specific application items.

      Some thought needs to be put into which general category should be used for the
      GF V3 Applications menu items. A set of conventional top level categories are
      listed here:

      Unfortunately, this list provide little assistance.

      Perhaps "Servers" should be used to represent the contained items as server
      applications.
