Description of problem:

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Look around the GNOME application menus
2. Mozilla is there under "Internet" but galeon is not on any menu that I can find

3) logout then back in to Gnome in case required for menu refresh
Still galeon does not appear.

this is a valid distro bug.
With my current test machine Galeon appears in All Applications -> Internet.
So I believe this is fixed in Rawhide.
Indeed, with the Limbo-re0726.1 tree, galeon is appearing in the 'All
