Categories for new addons should be chosen carefully to match and reflect the meaning and purpose, especially avoiding the general category when a more specific category exists.
The following category names are reserved:
config is for addons configuration
category/misc is for single file scripts, such as from the Scripts page
system, user, etc. are not used, to avoid conflict with any J top directory.
Please contact <jal AT SPAMFREE jsoftware DOT com> if you are unsure which category best matches your addon or want to discuss adding new categories.
