Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 151887
menu system: <MergeDir>s are not monitored for changes
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:07:17 EST
The recommended method for ISVs to install menus is to put a .menu in
$XDG_CONFIG_DIRS/menus/applications-merged which will cause the contents to be
merged into the applications menu.
Unfortunately, we don't monitor these directories to changes so if a package
installs a file in one of these directories the panel does not notice the new
file immediately and the ISV menus do not appear in the menu until the user logs
out and back in again.

The component this request has been filed against is not planned for inclusion
in the next update. The decision is based on weighting the priority and number
of requests for a component as well as the impact on the Red Hat Enterprise
Linux user-base: other components are considered having higher priority and the
number of changes we intend to include in update cycles is limited.
Product Management has reviewed and declined this request. You may appeal this
decision by reopening this request.
