Because we don't set up Fedora's menu structure to have submenus, at
present. But if we _did_, then you can see that kwrite could go into a
'Text Editors' submenu. kcalc and kbackup could both stand to have a
standard subcategory beyond just 'utility' added to their .desktop
files, I guess. The point is that the existing fd.o standard categories
already have enough granularity to allow a distro to construct submenus
_if it chooses to_.
Note that we had the same issue (too many apps in one menu) with the Games
SIG and I created a special games-menus package, which when installed
adds some additional configuration files which do sub-menu the
games menu in both kde and gnome (a must have if you install lots of
Alian, take a look at games-menu, and perhaps you can create the same
for the utilities menu ?
