I'm surprised that the "Meeting" category for events & tasks has been removed - I don't know about other users, but for me it's by far the most important one.

PS: It's still mentioned in the Calendar FAQ in the Mozilla Wiki.

Reproducible: Always
options-categories -> you can (re)create it there... 
I know. It's just a request, since I expect very few users know how or bother to do this, and I expect a significant fraction have gotten used to using that category by now.
Seems quite simple to me, although I don't think that users that don't bother with creating categories really care about the exact name of the category. We have a Business category, which I believe works equally well for those.

I think we have a bug or two about making it easier to create categories.

Christian, what do you think?
Whiteboard: [good first bug]
There never was a "Meeting" category, at least using Sunbird 0.2 or newer. 

In the FAQ I can't find a reference that a "Meeting" category existed except the section about how to assign a color via userChrome.css. In that section only non-existent categories are mentioned. By the way, the FAQ is out of date in may points.

You could morph this bug into an enhancement request to add it to the default category set. But this means a lot of work, in particular to update all localizations.
A default "Meeting" Category would be ok for me. It makes IMO totally sense.

Attached patch meeting patch, v1 β€” β€” Splinter Review
Ok, this is for post-0.9 and adds the meeting category. The entity "categories" has to be changed to "categories2" to indicate the l10n change.

Wouldn't it just be enough to add the "meeting"-category to the list? I don't see the use of using categories2 apart from testing with an already defined list in a profile?
Existing strings shouldn't be changed without changing the entity name, because otherwise translators could miss the change.
