Those aren't 'newbie' questions! (At least, they're not newbie answers) ;)
(1) From the Back Office ... NO. (At least, not that I'm aware of). I don't know what "GTD" is, so I don't know (exactly) what you're trying to accomplish. However, to populate the category list in one shot, one method would be to create a text file & then use myPhpAdmin to upload it directly into the database. I'm sure that would work (the good news). The bad news is that I don't know what the textfile needs to look like (I've never done what I'm suggesting .. other than a complete restore operation) :(
One suggestion, get into myPhpAdmin & export (into Excel or a comma-delimited file) ... that might give you some insight. There's probably more info on the MySQL site too.
Maybe someone else does?
(2) Again, not within the general flow of the software. But, because b2evo is so readily customizable ... the answer is again YES!
You would have to modify the uploading php file & run queries against the database. Not sure how you would get the list of words in, but your suggestion of <tags> might work.
I'm sorry that I don't know the mechanics, but I wanted to let you know that your ideas are 'doable'.
EdB, Whoo & some other folks have WAY more programming experience than I do ... I bet they could help you more than me. : :)
