Unfortunately one can't add more categories to the poll - there is a maximum -so I can't add indexing and the other suggestions... !

I voted for (Data transformation) As a general rule- at least in my field of pictorial mapping- I despise drawing early layouts and get progressively more motivated the closer I get to the finished piece. Tweaking final details is the best. Most tedious is proofing and re-proofing blocks of text such as listings

Hey, This tedious business is well, tedious...Here is a funny observation I just read to lighten things up...

A woman worries about the future until she gets a husband.
A man never worries about the future until he gets a wife..

A woman marries a man expecting he will change, but he doesn't.
A man marries a woman expecting that she won't change, but she does.

I voted for "Credits/sources/references/documentation". There's nothing creative or fun about it, and I usually can't even find a good spot for them. In rare circumstances, I'll put the space for them on the map first and work around it, but usually I just try to fit it somewhere in the end.
