Gnome 3 Applications Menu Editor?

My first post on Arch Forums!
I've been unable to find a simple GUI for editing the Gnome 3 Application Menu entries, so I made one.
Is there any interest in this (making it into a package, etc), or is there some preferred utility out there that I just haven't found yet?

Welcome to Arch!

If it is a script, you can post it under community contributions subforum.  If it is more complex, you can create a PKGBUILD for it and submit it to the AUR.  Then let us know about in the community contributions subforum.

Contributions are always welcome.

Great, I'll go package it up.

You can download the latest build here, and see the source:
https://github.com/efruchter/Gnome3_AppMenuEditor
I want to make it more capable and user friendly before I make it a package.

Here's a screenshot. It's been a while, so hopefully this isn't going to be come a zombie of a thread. I made some tiny improvements to the program. It's still not very usable as far as good programs go, but it gets the job done. Link to GitHub page in above comments.

Mod edit: The included image is far too big. See our forum rules about picture posting.

It looks nice! I just came here to register my interest in a PKGBUILD wink
