This would indeed fix the problem in my own environment, but wouldn't it
cause problems for people using SUSE 9.0 with Gnome for example?
Also what happens when a distro doesn't support both 'Languages' and
'X-KDE-Edu-Language'? Do I need to make extra support RPMs for each
distro if I want it to support certain categories or can I assume that
all users that would want to use the applications I package are running
a distro that supports the category properly? (For example, I can expect
a home/school desktop distro to support the Languages category, but not
a business oriented one.)
Thanks in advance,
