Hi!

Ever since I created my Update Site, I've had the problem that the
categories didn't show up. I tried to file my plug-in in a category, but it
would only show up as "uncategorized". What used to be a minor annoyance in
3.4 has now become a significant problem in 3.5, where uncategorised items
are by default filtered and I've already had a bug report saying that my
update site has stopped working.

Below is my site.xml (shortened - I removed redundant earlier version
entries of the plug-in):

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<site>
<description url="http://eclipse.musgit.com">
Eclipse support by Musgit Software.
</description>
<feature url="features/com.musgit.eclipse.grepconsole_2.0.3.jar"
id="com.musgit.eclipse.grepconsole" version="2.0.3">
<category name="GrepConsole"/>
</feature>
<category-def name="GrepConsole" label="Grep Console">
<description>
Grep Console highlights console lines according to fully
customisable regular expressions.
</description>
</category-def>
</site>

Must be a rather primitive problem, but I never found any helpful
documentation for creating update sites aside from the straightforward way
through the Eclipse wizards (which obviously didn't prevent me from messing
up mine).

Any pointers appreciated.

Thx,
Marian.
