Description Chris Ward 2010-06-09 06:57:06 UTC
Description of problem:

It seems to me that the default menu location for evolution 'mail and calendar' should be 'Internet' rather than 'Office'

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

Just install evolution and check the Main Menu ('start menu') 

If there's some justification for this and we would rather keep it in 'office'... well... whateva'. I just want to make sure this is intentional. :)

review of this request by Red Hat Engineering, for potential inclusion in a Red
Hat Enterprise Linux Major release.  This request is not yet committed for

Comment 2 Milan Crha 2010-06-09 07:28:50 UTC
It's intentional. Evolution is not just an "internet" application, an email client, it's also a calendaring and address book application, thus the Office menu item. There used to be more icons for evolution, one for each view (Mail/Contacts/Calendar/Task/Memo), but it confused bug-buddy with choosing proper component or names for bugzilla reports, thus only one desktop file was created instead, if I recall correctly.

Comment 3 Chris Ward 2010-06-09 10:04:56 UTC
Okay... so i'll close it since it's intentional. I think it's silly... since both calendaring and address book are quite 'internet' related. But whateva'. :) We'll see what customers think once we ship rhel 6, i suppose.
