Hi ^H^H^H Shame on you, hackers,

I have just checked, and only Gabi (thank you) has added the
keywords to her module.
The others (myself including) have missed the opportunity to make work in Milestone 6.

Please edit *.desktop now, and remember to submit your packages in
time. Example:

YaST hackers,

I've just finished implementing ground for feature #305845 [1], that is
support for defining additional keywords for YaST module and querying those
(in addition to module names) in (Qt4) control centre search.

However, to put the feature really into practice, I need your help. It is
simple: all you have to do is to modify .desktop file(s) your YaST module
ships by adding a new key-value pair to it. The key name is 'X-SuSE-YaST-
Keywords' (to conform to xdg standards [2]) and its value is comma-separated
list of words describing the function of the module.

[Desktop Entry]
//those you already have
GenericName=Modern Stone Age Family
//this you will need to add

I'm sure you know best which keywords to put in in order to make it easier
the users to find the module :)
Thanks for the cooperation.
