You’re right, I forgot about that rule. The thing is Manjaro Hello has some tools that change settings in your session such as applying customization presets. matray doesn’t do anything like that, but I guess it can be placed under both Internet and System since it has to do mainly with Manjaro update announcements.
Don’t have an accessible Github account as of yet (I don’t think?), but it’s something I considered. However, it would be once in a blue moon that I might use it.
The main concern is I feel discussion is better than going forwards with a change. This very thread is an example of that, as @acarasimon96 suggests a different category.
EDIT: And by the way, something like “matray” is actually an idea I was going to suggest as a feature for Manjaro when I first started using the distro. I love it! Thanks for the useful edition to this great distro, @moson!
When I sit down as a user, I keep an eye out for new updates as a means to maintain and update my system. (Pamac is in the System category.)
Since the news and announcements (from matray) that notify a user are usually paired with ISO releases, system updates, and security annoucements, it would feel right to consider it in the System category, the same as with Pamac.
The primary use-case is system maintenance and upkeep.
For comparison, Info Center, Pamac, and Hello are all in the System category. It’s true that matray uses an internet connection to refresh the latest news and announcements, but now that I think about it, it’s more of a “means to an end”, the “end” being system upkeep and maintenance as the ongoing purpose.
EDIT: Interestingly in KDE, Konsole (terminal) is placed under the System category, instead of Utilities.
This calls for an emergency session. All other Manjaro development must come to a complete halt until this is figured out! Is January 2022 enough time, or do you predict it might take longer to reach a consensus?
