I have 40+ categories I’d like to import, and I’d rather not do this manually.

I’m not clear on whether DataFlow should be used for this purpose. I haven’t found a forum thread that answers my question. Has anyone out there found a solution?

Thanks!

I don’t think it is possible yet.
But I’m interested a lot about this feature.

A slight addition to the question: how about mass importing categories using MySQL?

There has to be some method of importing categories even at this early stage in the life of Magento, right? Hacks are welcome =)
