  Description     : generates menus for window managers from .desktop files

It seems that Debian is slowly trying to switch from its old menu system
to the freedesktop .desktop system. Of course the long term goal should
be to have only one syntax for expressing menus and this appears to be
.desktop. That of course implies dropping support for .menu files
eventually. Unfortunately .desktop files are not yet integrated into
contemporary window managers such as awesome, fluxbox, fvwm, etc. Adding
this integration is the purpose of this package. For more information
refer to the Arch wiki: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Xdg-menu
