4.7.3 Removing a problem category

To remove a category from the database:

  1. Remove the Problem Reports from the subdirectories corresponding to the categories you wish to remove, or assign the PRs to new categories. All PRs for a given category reside in a subdirectory of the database directory, with the same name as the category.
  2. Run rmcat using
              rmcat category [ category... ]

    where category is the category you wish to remove. You can specify as many categories as you wish as long as each category has no PRs associated with it. rmcat removes the directory where the Problem Reports for that category had been stored.
