Create a Joomla! 1.5 module listing all of the items in a given category
Content in Joomla! is organized into sections, categories and then articles.

to each of the sections.
For this task you will create a module that lists and links to the
categories in each section.
The user should be able to pick a section and to select the type of links
(list or blog) that will be made to the categories.
All code must be created using the GNU General Public License version 2.

I've got the application logic all right, and even built an installable package. But what bugs me is that on a fresh RC3 installation with sample content loaded, some categories just plain refuse to display themselves with a blog layout (courtesy of attaching a "layout=blog" to the url) but if I create a menu entry for a blog view of that same category, it works. I'm studying the new com_content for a clue. I'll be uploading the code to Joomlacode the day after tomorrow, as tomorrow is SAT day.
P.S. It's great to be able to contribute to such a fantastic community!
