I was following up on Rahul's request for the policies of the various Distros.
While I don't expect there's much desire by other distribution to adopt this
system, the Debian menu maintainers should probably be invited to discuss
ideas for a common .desktop and menu scheme. Perhaps ideas from the Debian
menu system could be used as a starting point for a more consistent menu
management policy across distributions.
