This ticket, starts by the assumption that any user could/wish customize and rearrange the Deskbar menu according his own preferences. Currently in Haiku (not the PM branch) this can be easily done by going in the folder /boot/home/config/settings/deskbar: here we can not only make new folders, but we can also remove/move present items inside new folders (eg organizing them by category.. Media, Graphics, Utility, etc.. etc..) Currently, in the Haiku PM, there are three folder for the Deskbar menu: "/boot/system/data/deskbar/menu" and "/boot/common/data/deskbar/menu" which both are read only (so we cannot remove items from here) and "/boot/home/config/settings/deskbar/menu", which has write permissions. But i cannot move here, in new personal folders (eg utility, media, graphic), the elements which are present by default inside "/boot/system/data/deskbar/menu" and "/boot/common/data/deskbar/menu" because if i attempt to move elements from "/boot/system/data/deskbar/menu" to "/boot/home/config/settings/deskbar/menu", i will be warned about the fact that i cannot move elements from here. And this forbids users to organize/customize the Deskbar menu. So, in my opinion "/boot/system/data/deskbar/menu" and "/boot/common/data/deskbar/menu" should be present under a "non-packaged" directory (so without the restricting read only permission), to allow users to totally reorganize/customize the Deskbar menu according to own preferences.
