Don't give up please. Let's agree on the category list and I'll add this
list to queue-manager as Ferenc suggested. It can work the following
way: packages without 'User' sections will be processed by queue-manager
and added to the garage-testing repository without any check. Packages
with 'User' section will be checked against list of allowed sections and
will not be uploaded to the repository if section name isn't found in
the list. Email with explanations will be sent to uploader.

PS: Please, don't pay much attention to what is discussed below in this
thread. Using tags and other future proposals may be useful for future
development, but for this particular task(setting up extras-testing
repository) they're useless because current implementation of
application manager uses 'Section:' field to determine a category.
