Organize Media Creation Applications


  1. Move media creation applications into a new group in the desktop menu.
  2. Classify them into further subgroups for easy access.

Detailed Description

We have a wide range of applications and libraries dedicated to media production. See , for instance, the AudioCreation page for a list of our audio creation related applications.

Currently, the media production applications go into the Multimedia group in the desktop menu, mixing up with audio/video players (we also have a wide range of such applications), and make this group rather cluttered. However, the media production programs have a unique target audience, and their nature is really different from the audio/video players.

Benefit to Fedora

The number of available desktop applications of both player and production types is increasing every day. Listing these programs under different groups in the desktop menu, will make the Multimedia group look sane and make both type of applications more accessible.
