thank you very much for forwarding your patch.

I wonder if a Desktop entry shouldn't contain at least one ‘main’ category
from the FreeDesktop menu entry specification:


In Debian Med, we use a lot “Biology;Science;Education;”. On my system,
programs with such an entry find their way automagically in the Science

Would you agree with this change instead of your patch?

Have a nice day,
