4.7.2 Adding a problem category

To add new categories to the database:

  1. Add a line to for each new category to the categories file in the gnats-adm directory of the database. See The categories file.
  2. Run mkcat If applicable. If create-category-dirs is set to false in the database dbconfig file, you need to create category directories with mkcat. mkcat creates a subdirectory under the database directory for any new categories which appear in the categories file.
