We tried our best to match corresponding categories between the old and the new system, and bulk moved projects over that didn't have any categorization in the new scheme. We also split up a bunch of categories manually, and hope that most of the projects have been relocated correctly.
Currently, there are 732 projects left without categorization. If you are a developer of one of these projects, please click the "trove categorization" heading on your project's page to update its categorization. Otherwise, people will likely not be able to easily find your project.
For the ordinary visitor, nothing much changed. Due to the merge, we have only one category tree left for you to browse, which means that it's likely to be more crowded within one or more categories. But it's also likely that, due to the larger pool of applications available in one place, you will be able to find the applications you're looking for much quicker now. If there's a need for additional subcategories to split up one of the larger ones, feel free to drop us a note.
All in all, we hope this last and final step in the freshmeat I to
freshmeat II merge helps you to make even more use of the resources
Happy new year to all of you (better late than never).
