What is the process for proposing, agreeing and getting Nokia to add in the 
next release, new categories?

I believe we need a category for PIM.  Ryan has suggested that the GPE PIM 
applications should go in the Office category but I disagree. To me, the 
Office category is for business applications (like spreadsheets and 
presentation programs) -- a non-business user would not expect to have 
anything from the Office category installed and would not look in it.  But 
many non-business users would expect to have PIM applications installed.  

Of course, there are other PIM applications apart from GPE and they should all 
be in the same place for people to see the alternatives, try them out and 
decide which one they like.

Can we debate this and come to some agreement?

And if the agreement is to add it, how do we do that for Freemantle?


P.S. Sorry for the delay in joining this discussion: I am travelling a lot at 
the moment -- with 3 more weeks away out of the next 5 --- and not reading 
non-work email when I am away.
