I have a couple of review requests which may be affected by the
outcome of this discussion. Specifically whether one should append
"fedora-" to the names of the *.desktop files or use the "X-Fedora"
category in the *.desktop files installed by these packages in
/usr/share/applications ?

I have seen:
but not sure what the final decision is. These seem to drafts or
"decisions to be taken".
