Trinity Developer Quick Reference page started on the wiki

  After researching the freedesktop Menu Specification and Desktop Entry
Specification, I though it would be nice to have a page to make these links
available for others to use rather than just putting them in my bookmarks. That
way somebody else doesn't have to spend the 10-20 minutes searching the next
time a menu or desktop entry questions comes up.

  If you are doing research for a particular issue and come up with a link that
provides a proper specification or howto that can help other Trinity devs out,
please drop the link on the page. If you can help save somebody else 30 minutes
of searching or googling to come up with an answer -- that's 30 minutes more
that they can put to fixing bugs or cmake files.

  Think of this page as a "Bookmarks for Trinity Developers" page:

  To drop a new link, just 'edit' the page, 'copy/paste' an existing heading to
create a new one (change the names) and add your link. That simple. External
link format in foswiki is just:

[[http://path/to/whatever.html Then The Title You Want Displayed]]

  Takes ~ 20 secs to edit,add an entry, and save :)
