I have done some of that over the last few weeks.

See the current result at:
http://projects.apache.org/projects/forrest.html

Would Forrest developers please review the
categories that i have assigned:
build-management, database, graphics, http,
network-client, network-server, web-framework, xml

The idea of categories is to create linkages
between projects.

The definitions are at:
http://projects.apache.org/categories.html

One thing that is not yet done, is to define
the standards that we implement. See Apache FOP
for example.
http://projects.apache.org/guidelines.html
http://projects.apache.org/doap-extensions.html

How do we modify the one at O'Reilly CodeZoo [2] above.
I thought that it automatically picked up our changes
but evidently not.
