Hello Debian GNOME maintainers, 

Chris Cheney has released a new package, menu-xdg, that provides
menu-methods that build freedesktop compliant .desktop, .directory, and
.menu files.

I am in the process of tweaking menu and menu-xdg so that it generate
multilingual .directory. A prototype was send to Chris Cheney already.

I believe it is in the best interest of everyone if the GNOME packages
were updated to use menu-xdg. This will make the process far more
maintainable by allowing me to improve menu without waiting for a full
upload of GNOME and KDE.

Do not hesitate to contact me and Chris for info how to proceed.

Imagine a large red swirl here.
