Same desktop files are shown in the Git category, but not in the Programming category in the GNOME Applications Menu

Hello!

I have difficulties to solve this little problem. I like to keep the applications menu beautiful, clean and organised. Forgive me for my perfectionism. Here are the codes in the file gnome-applications.menu:

<?xml version="1.0" ?>

<!DOCTYPE Menu PUBLIC '-//freedesktop//DTD Menu 1.0//EN' 'http://standards.freedesktop.org/menu-spec/menu-1.0.dtd'>

In the menu, in the category Git, the desktop files are shown:

But the same desktop files are not shown in the category Programming:
