should be able to scan through this list, and get that information without having to click
outside of the wiki.

gnome will.

Well that wasn't required when we started this link collection (and
was basically just a link collection)

> Benoit, could you update the wiki to explain how or why you have used CouchDB on the
sites you have linked to from there? You're exactly the type of developer I can imagine setting
a great example for others to follow.

Will do that during the we with pleasure. I'm just asking myself how
we can handle that better though in term of data
collection/organization. Could be quite a long wiki post.
