GNOME Bugzilla – Bug 687121
When searching for desktop launchers, also use GenericName and FullName fields of the desktop file

See bug #685824 for details.
I don't think FullName is too useful - it is largely '<Name> <GenericName>' modulo translation and rearrangement.
But GenericName will help a lot for terms such as browser, debugger, spreadsheet.

If we have a prefix match on name, but only a substring match on generic name, the match is degraded to SUBSTRING.

Looks good, thanks!
I think this should go to 3.6 too

This seems wrong to me. See bug 689345 and bug 682529.
The correct fix to bug 685824 would have been to add the keyword to the desktop file, as Florian pointed out: https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=685824#c1

Ignore me. It seems fine. See https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=682529#c10
