FYI, unless there is a bug in my script that I use to generate the PDF parts catalog, the following categories are not used by any official parts:
  • Forklift
  • Grab
  • Helper
  • Lever

Since Helper is new, that's I assume not unexpected. We might want to consider whether the others should be left as valid categories, though.

I almost forgot: POV-Ray and String are used as category by at least one official part each. We obviously don't want POV-Ray (used for light.dat), but String should perhaps be added to the list. (It seems at least conceivable that LEGO would have a string with different thickness at some point.)

An update to light.dat (incidentally that last part with release ORIGINAL) is on the PT. I suppose it can use the Helper category but moving it to the /h folder isn't possible just yet.

I agree with String and will add it.

Grab can go away.

Looks like all the Forklift parts got moved to Vehicle. Maybe we should consider doing the same for the other non-Car/Plane/Boat categories (like Tractor and Exhaust)

Lever is more useful as a category but since it's not in use it can probably go as well.

I would like to have a link on that page, to use for a download of Category.txt needed by DatHeader.
The update function in DatHeader doesn't work anymore.

I already thought of that and it's in the works.

However, I don't know the URL DATHeader is using.

The PT has the list hard coded.  That said, the code base is large and I didn't write it so there are sure to be things I'm not I'm not aware of. Where, specifically, is DATHeader pointing for this file.
