 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:

http://standards.freedesktop.org/menu-spec/latest/apa.html

Unfortunately, this list provide little assistance.

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

This might require patches from Open Installer.

Bulk update to change fix version to "not determined" for all issues still open but with a fix version for a released version.
