I am trying to write .desktop files for some engineering (particularly
electronics) and hamradio applications and I'm struggling to find a
suitable main category.
For example the GPL EDA suite (geda.seul.org). It fits neatly into the
additional categories Electronics and Engineering, but none of the main
categories applies. Another example is an application like gpredict,
a satellite position calculator. It is created for hamradio use but it
is actually of more general use.
Some electronics and science/math tools have chosen Education as their
main category but in many cases, education is not their major aim. I
think professional users of such applications would not expect to find
them in the Education menu.
I think there is a need for main categories for Engineering, Math and/or
Science and HamRadio. Any thoughts?
