[maemo-community] Missing categories in Bugzilla

Thanks Quim.  I'll follow the protocol you describe.  You're right that
our situation is "tricky" so I had a suspicion there might be problems in
expanding Maemo Bugzilla... I only suggested what I did because I knew
that as I was leaving Nokia there was a movement to open Pilots up to the
public (but to what degree I am uncertain, especially since the program
has been quiet for months).

Also, it may have appeared like I was blaming timsamoff for
miscommunication.  Nothing is further from the truth-- the fault was mine
for trying to get points across in twitter.  ; )
