Description Christopher Beland 2005-01-23 19:05:12 EST
yelp-2.6.3-1 redhat-menus-3.7.1-1.fc3 The category scheme that yelp uses to arrange documentation is different from that used by the menu system. Also, yelp does not list documents in alphabetical order (at least not by the titles displayed). The yelp category scheme also does not seem like it would be very intuitive for novice users (presumably those most likely to seek help). These factors make it more difficult than necessary to find documentation in the yelp system if one starts from the desktop menus.

Fedora Core 3 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for security updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please reopen and reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a security issue and hasn't been resolved in the current FC5 updates or in the FC6 test release, reopen and change the version to match. Thank you!

These are good suggestions but I think they would be better directed to the upstream developers at bugzilla.gnome.org. The categories in Yelp seem to correlate with the Applications panel menu pretty well now, but perhaps that wasn't so much the case in the past.
