to get the entry for kst on kde.org/applications done I now simply copied some
text from the kst homepage and it is live now
So please check https://www.kde.org/applications/education/kst/ to see where

the one from https://kst-plot.kde.org/, https://kst-plot.kde.org/3-pics.png)
("education" is not the perfect fit. But perhaps the best among the current
set of categories. This one-category-per-app hopefully will be improved in the
near future, perhaps by copying the approach used in the app start menus in
