A question for SourceForge.

There's already a "Category" field on SF patches, but the main view doesn't
show it (you have to look at an individual patch to see it) and there's
apparently no way to filter on it either.  Also think you have to be an
admin to create a new category.  I'll confess in advance, though, that I
expect each additional field will just be one more field set incorrectly on
the vast minority of patches.

Yes; thank you; I'll post a revision later today.  The intent was always
that "assigned to" be the most likely person to take action next.
