I have this silly idea. Has anyone thought of analysing the descriptions of
packages to automatically generate (at least some of) the keywords. Sort of
like google.

I don't know if there is any theory about this. Say you notice that several
hundred packages happen to mention the word "gnome", that would indicate a
Gnome category may be useful.

Just an idea mind you.
