Thanks and congratulation !
To me it looks like we have 10 categories now:
http://wiki.openmoko.org/wiki/Category:Categories That said, a deep category
tree is not necessily better than a broad one. Tags, which are quite popular
these days, form a category tree of depth 1. On the wiki issues page, I
suggested a facet-based categorization, with top categories and only one
level of subcategories.
I am not sure where Kempelen, who is spearheading the recategorization
effort, wants to go. I think he is looking for continuity with the existing
mess and purposely trying to avoid a full rewamp of the category tree.
