Revision as of 22:39, 28 July 2009

We should fix application names.

Please see the following thread for a detailed discussion: http://lists.freedesktop.org/archives/xdg/2009-July/010807.html


Some general rules:

  • Desktop file Name value, application menu (for gnome-shell), titlebar (for gnome 2), documentation, and about dialog should all use the same name
  • Desktop file Name value should be the simple "brand" name unless the application is a core GNOME built-in and does not have an external brand identity (web site, online help, etc)
