I can reproduce this.  But worse, in my case yelp immediately quits upon this
"warning" message.

Comment 2 Matěj Cepl 2008-07-29 17:08:16 UTC
Doesn't crash, but produces messages -- yelp-2.22.1-4.fc9.i386

Comment 3 Matthew Barnes 2008-11-10 21:08:28 UTC
Hmm, system-config-{dates,services,users} are the only packages (on my system, anyway) using those categories.  If anything this is a rarian issue, but the category looks valid according to


Though I'm not yet sure how it all fits together.  Moving this over to rarian for now (which also belongs to me).

Comment 4 Matthew Barnes 2008-11-10 21:46:38 UTC
Found the problem, opened an upstream bug:

I'll post a patch if Don doesn't beat me to it.

Comment 5 Matthew Barnes 2008-11-11 00:53:37 UTC
Fixed in rarian-0.8.1-2.fc10.
