Hello Guy,

I'll have a look at both wireshark.desktop files. Any file for Debian
packaging purposes *must* be in the debian/ directory, that's 'the Debian
way'. The one in the top I'm not sure of, yet.

I also considered the status of wireshark-root.desktop. First of all it's
not used by default in the package build. The required command is commented
out in rules. Still I kept the file available for inclusion if, for some
reason, the package builder needs it for a particular configuration. 

Thanx,
Jaap

We now have two wireshark.desktop files, one in the top-level directory and
one in the debian directory; the differences between them are:

$ diff wireshark.desktop debian

Is there a reason not to have just one "wireshark.desktop" file?  If not,
can it be in the top-level directory, or does the way Debian packaging is
done require that it be in the "debian" directory?

Also, given that Wireshark 1.0 is not supposed to be run as root (only
dumpcap needs privileges), is there any reason to have a
wireshark-root.desktop file?
