    I have installed elementaryOS in VirtualBox with two Desktops (Pantheon and XFCE).

    The OnlyShowIn=...; option is always interpreted as NotShowIn=...;.
    However, the option NotShowIn=...; has no effect, i.e. all *.desktop files with this option are displayed everywhere on all desktop interfaces.
    This is a heavy bug in elementaryOS.

    Where and how can I make a bug report to the elementary maintainers?

    A bug report will probably not be successful. I have repositioned the system from the elementaryOS ISO in a USB stick.
    This stick starts infinitely slowly, more then 6 minutes.
    But he shows the problem with OnlyShowIn=...; and NotShowIn=...; not.
    This should lead to the problem of the numerous upgrades.

    with regards
