All these things that you mentioned don't influence how the package is
fetched or extracted, therefore I don't see a point in running the
editor initially.

In some cases, such as Perl or Python modules, url2pkg even fills in the
HOMEPAGE, the COMMENT or the LICENSE for you. That's a pretty new
feature though, so you might not have noticed it.

By the way, "wip" and "local" are not added to CATEGORIES anymore.
Thanks for the suggestion.

For what reason?
