"Developer Tools" > "Debugging" has no items

Bug Description

Ubuntu Software Center 1.1.17, Ubuntu Lucid
Ubuntu Software Center, Ubuntu Maverick

1. Choose "View" > "All Software".
2. Navigate to "Get Software" > "Developer Tools" > "Debugging".

What happens: "0 items available".
What should happen: At least Winpdb, KXSLDbg, KDbg, Nemiver, and D-Feet should be there.

This might be just because I messed up with the XML, or it might be because all those applications actually don't have Category set to "Debugger" when they should.

And the answer was ... I'd messed up with the XML.

This patch should fix it. Unfortunately I have forgotten how to test the fix. I thought it was "sudo PYTHONPATH=. python utils/update-software-center", but that does not seem to make a difference.
