L18L has done some fantastic work, with scripts to extract category information from .desktop files. There is also a GUI, see above link, also here:
I have merged the first bunch of packages that L18L has mapped to the categories in categories.dat, and updated categories.dat.
Previously, I had 644 packages in categories.dat, it is now 1840 packages.
I also recompiled 'debdb2pupdb.bac', as that compiles with categories.dat included, that is, builtin. I suppose in future I could modify the BaCon code to load categories.dat dynamically at runtime.
