Description of problem:
virt-manager is not GNOME HIG compliant.
1. according to GNOME HIG the menu entry tooltip should be phrased as a verb.
virt-manager's menu entry tooltip is "The virtual machine management tool".
"Manage virtual machines" would be more appropriate.

2. Help/Help menu uses "Ctrl+H" keyboard shortcut. According to GNOME HIG the
keyboard shortcut should be "F1" and the menu entry should be renamed

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Steps to Reproduce:
less /usr/share/applications/virt-manager.desktop

Thanks for the info about the GNOME HIG. I have made the neccessary fixes in
upstream codebase


Will be included in Fedora next time we sync with upstream.

This is available in rawhide in virt-manager-0.5.2 or later.
