Summary0000989: Additional categories desirable for Inform6 projects
DescriptionI would like the Inform6 and Inform6 library projects to have some more categories -- not just "general". Please replace that with "bug" and "wishlist".
TagsNo tags attached.

I can add these, though I'm not sure we want them to be categories. Categories currently stand for pieces of each project (more or less), so that Parser, VerbLib, and Grammar would be the natural choices here. Perhaps a tag, like ``I6 library suggestion'' or ``I6 library wishlist'' would serve better? It's a little tricky to say, because we keep other projects' non-bugs at [^]–that would be another option.

Categories for I6lib could reasonably parallel the I7 core:

Actions, parsing, world model, printing issues (banner, status line, list-maker), Glulx issues (graphics, sounds). Maybe also a category for language support (meaning internationalization/translation, not the I6 language).

As for the compiler, I haven't felt any need for categories. But if I were to categorize I6 bugs, I'd go with:

Memory handling, errors, parsing, code generation, VM support, veneer, language (meaning I6 language features).

(I do not want to handle I6 or I6lib feature requests through Uservoice. We don't have that level of demand, and we're not constrained by Graham's desire to clear out Mantis on every release.)

I'll handle suggestions manually until it becomes too much hassle. Then I'll look for some other solution; maybe cook up something myself.

Okay. The offer still stands for category additions; just let me know if you want them.
