Description Charles Goodwin 2002-07-30 05:35:26 UTC
Currently the major of window managers, when emerged, have a default menu
subsystem.  This is obviously not preferable.

Mauro Sciaccaluga, you don't need to reinvent the wheel, creating a new menu
system for Gentoo. Just take the Debian menu system and use it in Gentoo. It
works very well, it's opensource, and it's been already used by other distros
(xandros, lycoris, lindows, etc...).
This is the only thing that i really miss from Debian: Every app installed
creates a menu entry.
