The long answer: 

Hmmm, funky. I have no idea why there suddenly are no categories marked
as mandatory for releases, I wonder when/how this changed? Anyway - I
have worked over the category tree and now:

- Package group is mandatory for packages. That is now the ONLY category
mandatory there. Also added a new subcat called "Non official package" -
this is the one to pick! (hopefully people will understand that)
- License, Version, Maturity level are now mandatory for RELEASES (not
packages). This means they can all change from release to release.
- Added Compatibility level as a new mandatory category for RELEASES.
This is for the upcoming dependency scheme so I threw it in. See:

And the short answer is: Try adding releases again. :)
