far and this experience is important for your evaluation.

A couple of comments about this:

- The overall idea is really nice.

- Cosmetically, it's quite ugly - the text is so small it's barely readable and the grey background doesn't help with reading black text.

Yes, it is quite old. Someone with better CSS capabilities can work on that since the plan is to make it open source.

- License information is really important for a Free Software project, especially for frameworks, but to a lesser degree for applications.

Ok. Could be removed or just left as it is.

- I am not sure price is an important field. If the license is 'proprietary' then they can go to the home page to find out what the price is.

Not really. That comes because the original package was used for something different.

- Fields for svn / cvs access would be very useful. A lot of things in the Étoilé repository haven't released snapshots yet, but people can get them from svn easily.

Good idea.

- A field for the umbrella project would be useful. If a project is part of GAP, Backbone, or Étoilé then it would be nice to have this indicated.

Good idea.

- For some reason Gorm isn't an application.

You can easily request a change for that without registration (if not done already). Just click on the "Anything wrong" link.
