Description Adam Bowns 2004-11-24 01:25:58 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.5) Gecko/20041111 Firefox/1.0 Description of problem: There is no entry for emacs in any category of the ï¿½Applicationsï¿½ menu in FC3 (as far as I can see anyway). As I remember, it used to have an entry under ï¿½Programmingï¿½ in FC2. Is this the case for you guys too? If so, has it been left out for a reason, or is it a mistake? Just to confirm, I do have emacs installed, and the version is emacs-21.3-17. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): redhat-menus-3.7.1-1.fc3

I think that it has been left out for a reason. Emacs is not a GNOME integrated program and not user friendly and therefore should not be in the default menus.

Its a good point, and probably true when looking at it from an average end users perspective. But a large percentage of fedora's user base are developers, and like it or loathe it, there are a *lot* of developers out there who like and use emacs. This is just my opinion, and I'm sure there will be many who disagree. But I think if an application is included in fedora and it has a GUI, it should be included in the menu.

this bug has been fixed in the latest emacs update.
