sure, let me start by making the initial suggestion

- scm: for all scm plugins (as today)
- scm-related: for scm helper plugins (as today except git,label column)
- trigger: for buils triggers (as today)
- builder/buildstep: for plugins that extend Builder. As today except
a few to clean out like project health, build pipeline, post build
task and the such
- slave: anything related to managing slaves (as today except system load avg)
- notification: for plugins that notify after (as today except copy to
slave, hudsontracker?)
- report: build reports
- publish/upload: any artifact uploader/publisher
- security: for security and user management
- fun: for none serious plugins such as cigame etc.

I know I am missing some categories, but since many of them are

changes from the current topic list
- suggest slaves and cloud plugins are one category
- drop the maven category
- add a library category for things like static-analysis-core, token-macro etc.
- drop the misc category and just use uncategorised

Maybe we should build an alternative topic page while we figure this out ?

Speaking of which, did we ever get the download/install stats for
plugins fixed, and is the data publically available ?
