Description R P Herrold 2002-11-25 07:30:00 UTC
Reviewing the .spec file for redhat-config-kickstart, we find:

desktop-file-install --vendor redhat --delete-original      \
  --dir $RPM_BUILD_ROOT%{_datadir}/applications             \
  --add-category Application \
  --add-category System \
  --add-category X-Red-Hat-Base          \

which is acting to generate desktop appearance links.  

That it is written thus, also implies that a guide to writing such spec file
entries exists, to permit knowing the options and form of option available.

Would it be possible to get a man page, or failing that, a copy of the user
guide for this tool, added to this package?

Comment 1 Havoc Pennington 2002-12-13 21:10:12 UTC
There's no way writing this man page will make it to the top of 
my bug list queue. :-/ I can add it to the upstream tarball if 
someone makes a patch.
