I promise this is the last one today -- didn't want to get threads
confused. :D Any thoughts/hints on the following would be greatly
appreciated..even the url for a good example build as the one's I'm
coming up w/ only build raw features:

I can't grok how to get categories created properly. I can generate the
update site just fine using the built in p2 support, but there don't
appear to be any hooks for specifying categories. To be clear, here I'm
talking about the broad categories that show up under p2 Install, e.g.
"Models and Model Development" "OpenArchitectureWare", etc..

My reading of newsgroup and wiki traffic is that that has to happen
through a site.xml file. (Which I thought was a p1 mechanism, but
anyway..) OK, but I'm also seeing that the site.xml file is *not*
produced by the PDE Build p2 generator. So that means that we have to
create and synchronize the site.xml file manually? But the site file
isn't finding the artifacts created in the target PDE Build P2 site.
Does this mean that we actually need to edit the site.xml file by hand
with the new version information every time we do a release?
