Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 471346
policytool should not appear in desktop menu
Last modified: 2009-07-16 03:15:23 EDT
Description of problem:
If one installs openjdk the "mysterious" policytool program appears in the desktop under Programming: I don't think most users know or understand what this utility is for or need it. Well I have never used it. Suggestions: (1) drop the desktop file completely (2) hide the desktop file (3) move policytool to a -devel package, or ?
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Do a default Fedora install or yum group install office
2. login and show the desktop menu
1. openoffice et al installed
2. Programming -> "OpenJDK Policy Tool" entry appears: "whatever that is?"
2. no policytool to appear in desktop menu
Default desktop should not have any Programming desktop submenu.
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 10 development cycle.
