The distinction between "Application Addons" and "Plasma Addons" seems arbitrary and confusing. For example, "Application Addons" contains:
- color schemes
- kate snippets
With the exception of "Kate Snippets", all of these are systemwide in nature and I would expect them to be in "Plasma Addons" instead. And if there's only one item in that's truly appropriate for "Application Addons", maybe we should just have a single "Addons" category that includes everything.
This would simplify things and make searching for addons more reliable, as this was brought to my attention came up when a user tried to search "Plasma Addons" for cursor themes, quite understandably not knowing that they would be listed under "Application Addons" The search came up empty, so he concluded that we suck at searching.
