Package Classification / Debtags
There has been some discussion on the mailing list [http://lists.debian.org/debian-science/2008/06/msg00060.html ] about classifying packages. Debtags seem to be the solution, but clearer guidelines for how to apply the current vocabulary are needed, and more vocabulary is needed for detailed classification.
Some progress has been made bringing the wiki pages up to date. More work is needed here.
