Editing components and charts in Coverity Integrity Control

This wasn't the most clear-cut thing to do. Maybe this is explained in the CIC training which I skipped?

Anyways, it's relatively easy to edit the component map and charts in CIC. The instructions in the INSTALL.txt are a bit misleading, though. If you run the ImportCategories command again, you will get duplicate charts and there is no apparent way of getting rid of them.

The correct (?) way is to copy the files with the desired component map and charts from the CIC installation directory to CIM config directory and name them nodes.xml and categories.xml, respectively.

Then go to CIC config window, XML upload and load the file that has the changes. This will clear any existing data and apply the changes. This will not touch the actual data in any way.
