Categories for new addons should be chosen carefully to match and reflect the meaning and purpose, especially avoiding the general category when a more specific category exists.
The following category names are reserved:
- config is for addons configuration
- category/misc is for single file scripts, such as from the Scripts page
- system, user, etc. are not used, to avoid conflict with any J top-level directory.
Please contact <<MailTo(jal AT SPAMFREE jsoftware DOT com)>> if you are unsure which category best matches your addon.
