Can anyone explain why the following update site, when added to the
Install New Software wizard, tells me "There are no categorized items"?

<site>
<description url="http://www.rizzoweb.com/Eclipse/updatesite">
Eric Rizzo's misc. plug-ins.
</description>
<feature
url=" features/org.eclipse.community.feature_0.2.0.200908092301.ja r "
id="org.eclipse.community.feature" version="0.2.0.200908092301">
<category name="org.eclipse.community"/>
</feature>
<category-def name="org.eclipse.community" label="Eclipse Community"/>
</site>

The feature does show up if I un-check the "Group by category" option,
but why is it not recognizing the category?

Would a guess help? I notice the categories name and ID are different
from each other. I remember (from long long ago) that there were some
bugs which caused these to essentially have to be the same value.
Otherwise, you might also just try using the counterintutive
category-def label instead of name, in the feature's category element.
