Dear Galaxy Team,

A colleague would like to upload some NLP (Natural Language Processing) tools 
to the Galaxy Test/Main tools sheds, but we are unclear what "categories" to 
use for the tools.  I see that the Main/Test tools sheds have a category for 
"Text Manipulation", but that does not seem appropriate for NLP tools.  Is it 
possible to have new categories added to the tool shed(s)?  If so, what is the 

I am just starting to investigate setting up our own local tool shed and I am 
coming across mentions of repository capsules and exporting tool sheds.  Would 
it be preferable to install the NLP tools to a local tool shed and then export 
a repository/capsule to be imported to the Test/Main tools sheds?  What happens 
if our tool shed uses a disjoint set of categories than Test/Main?
