Default gnome-menu changes

Hi there,

can you please share some insight on the latest changes in gnome-menu?

1. The python module is no longer shipped, is this intended?
2. redhat-menus is no longer used. IHMO think this is a step in the
wrong direction because we no longer have consistent menus
between desktops. What is the future of redhat-menus?
3. Now that redhat-menus are not used anymore, can we please have
all *.directory and *.menu files from gnome-menus properly
prefixed with "gnome-"?

Regards,
Christoph

Yes, this is covered in the git logs. It's been replaced by
introspection.

Dunno, the GNOME bits in Fedora don't use it is all I can say.

Why is it a problem? But sure, feel free to make a patch.

Thanks for the info. As this change caused problems for other packages
(#737112), too, a heads-up would have been nice. I really cannot read
all scm logs of all the deps of my ~ 150 packages.

Look into /etc/xdg/menus or /usr/share/desktop-directories and tell me
which files belong to which package.

All files are properly prefixed, only the GNOME and the redhat-menu
ones are not. redhat-menus even references on of the GNOME files without
depending on it and this problem was not spotted during the review.

I'll do this later once I have finished my dayjob work.

Regards,
Christoph
