Desktop teams could draft policies to inform developper on their expectations.

It would be however much simpler if the responsible of the GNOME, KDE
and XFCE desktop packages told us what to hide, instead of us having to
take the python example and generalise to any package. This discussion
is getting very anecdotical and is not producing usable information for
developpers wondering how to write a .desktop which can at the same time
please the GNOME team and be used to generate a .menu file. In the
absence of any clear guideline, my approach would be rather to be
liberal by default and wait for bug reports... But I repeat, I am sure
that developpers only want to trust the GNOME, KDE and XFCE teams, and
just hide what has to be hidden, *if they are told what to hide*.

Have a nice day,
