[Bug 1041136] Searching for "yast software" in GNOME activities finds nothing.

--- Comment #3 from Moritz Rakow <moritzrakow@xxxxxx> ---
According to the [ Desktop Entry Specification][1], the relevant
fields where the term "YaST" could be added are "Name" and "Keywords".

Name | Specific name of the application, for example "Mozilla".
GenericName | Generic name of the application, for example "Web Browser".

Keywords | A list of strings which may be used in addition to other
metadata to describe this entry. This can be useful e.g. to facilitate
searching through entries. The values are not meant for display, and should
not be redundant with the values of Name or GenericName.

At the moment, neither .desktop file contains a "keywords" field, and both
values for "Name" are generic: "Release Notes" and "Software Management",

As names are visible to the user, I suggest adding the line "Keywords=YaST;" to
the .desktop files of all Yast modules. This way, everything visible stays the
same, but searching for a Yast module will work better.
