According to http://standards.freedesktop.org/menu-spec/latest/apa.html , the 
TextEditor category should always used in conjunction with the Utility 
category. We need to test if adding the Utility category doesn't break the KDE 
menu though. (Currently Kate is listed under "Utilities/Editors" where it 
belongs, we don't want it duped under the top-level "Utilities" menu.)
Comment 2 Jens Petersen 2008-02-18 22:24:32 EST
Hmm, so is this a GNOME bug then?
Comment 3 Kevin Kofler 2008-02-18 22:28:06 EST
The spec says kate.desktop should define a primary category (such as Utility) 
in addition to TextEditor (which is an additional category), but of course it 
would also be possible to change redhat-menus to do something useful with the 
TextEditor category.
Comment 4 Rex Dieter 2008-02-27 10:22:30 EST
added Category=Utility
