I assume the first patch (yast2-fix-desktop-files.patch) needs to be
applied to trunk as well as the SLE11-SP1 branch?

It depends on how much you want to have categories in Gtk CC fixed (better:
consistent with Qt and text-mode) in SLE11-SP1 :) The patch is certainly
welcome in trunk.

However, with SLE11, beware of "X-SuSE-YaST-Support" category and verify it is
"registered" with update-desktop-files utils. If it is not, you have to ask
someone (coolo?) to add it.
IIRC there was an issue (in registration modules, I believe), where this
category was unknown to scripts processing .desktop files, so it got deleted
during the build as invalid.

I've submitted patched packages for yast2-rdp and yast2-network for SP1.

Oh, you submitted yast2-network package with patch? YaST packages (those
living in YaST subversion) normally aren't shipped with patches. We usually
integrate received patches to our SVN repo and package updated sources with
YaST tools. But we haven't any recommended workflow for this yet. I guess we
need to find some pretty soon ...
