#8971 closed enhancement (fixed)

Move some desktop packages out of particular DE chapters.

When I look at Chapter 42, Graphical Web Browsers, I read

This chapter contains a wonderful selection of browsers.
We hope you can find one you enjoy using or give them each
a trial run.

But it only lists Chromium, SeaMonkey and Firefox. (hmm, not in alphabetic order - I had missed that)

We also have QupZilla (in lxqt, although it doesn't depend on any of lxqt and isn't part of it - could be useful to people building kf5), midori (part of xfce, but doesn't depend on xfce packages), and epiphany (part of gnome, Douglas tells me it needs to be in a gnome DE for its tests to work).

So, move all three into Chapter 42.

For epiphany and midori, put in a dummy page in those DEs to point to the appropriate moved page.

Pierre pointed out that juffed is not really a part of lxqt and could move to the Editors chapter. I guess its QScintilla-gpl dependency should move somewhere else too, perhaps X Libraries.

I don't understand the dummy page comment. Users should be able to find the browsers without something like that.
