12 Well, games-* could be herd: games... and games-fps could be herd: games
13 maintainer: vapier, wolf31o2... I'm also sure that app-vim could be
14 herd: vim... Just like app-emacs could be herd: emacs...
16 There are herds that are specifically designed to maintain a category.
17 Take net-mail or net-print (printing) as examples. At the very minimum,
18 I can see value in being able to assign a herd to a category, if not a
19 maintainer.
