19.2. Choosing the right category

As many of the categories overlap, you often have to choose which of the categories should be the primary category of your port. There are several rules that govern this issue. Here is the list of priorities, in decreasing order of precedence.

If you are not sure about the category, please put a comment to that effect in your send-pr submission so we can discuss it before we import it. If you are a committer, send a note to the FreeBSD ports mailing list so we can discuss it first--too often new ports are imported to the wrong category only to be moved right away.
