Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 127831
the rhn-applet.desktop file makes "Red Hat Network" appear in the menu

This is with FC3test1. In the Main Menu->System Tools menu, there are
Red Hat Network
Red Hat Netowrk Alert Icon
As far as I know, RHN doesn't work with Fedora. Does the rhn-applet
actually do anything on Fedora systems? If not, we should remove it
from the distro. If it does something, we should conditionalize the
.desktop files so that it says something other than "Red Hat Network"
on Fedora systems.
Also, in the System Settings menu, it says "Red Hat Network Configuration"
Yes, RHN applet still does something -- it gives the user notification
of whether the system is fully up2date, and if it isn't, the applet
can list the packages that need updates, etc. (IIRC it's just as fully
functional with yum repos as it is with Red Hat Network itself.)
Yes, just the naming is unfortunate.
