This means we can kill all the patches that just change desktop files to use GenericName instead of Comment. Yay!

Starting a new thread with a clear title so everybody reads it :-)
I've updated the desktop menu part of the package conventions  to fix some errors. See  for the discussion.
Here's the detail of the changes:
+ GenericName is not the key used for the tooltip. It's the Comment key. Fixed the examples accordingly.
+ Make the examples valid .desktop files. Also use StartupNotify and StartupWMClass instead of old KDE-specific keys.
+ the Encoding key is deprecated, so I removed any mention of it.
+ Fix the description of the Icon key. The value can be an absolute path. Also link to the icon theme specification to explain where icons should be installed.
