While it doesn't directly answer your question, there is a source of
information on applications for PostgreSQL -- the PostgreSQL-HOWTO,
which I include as part of the RPM distribution (on RedHat's insistence
-- the RPM's they shipped with RedHat 6.1 HAD to have that HOWTO,
ITNSHO).  This HOWTO has a pretty comprehensive list of things -- its
only detraction is that it is a _Linux_ HOWTO.

The PostgreSQL HOWTO as I package it can be pulled from

Or, you can view the latest version online at

I know how you feel about Linux, Marc....but this HOWTO has some good
things in it that transcends the linux-centric HOWTO list.

Thomas, this HOWTO, like all HOWTO's, is sourced in SGML. The current
maintainer is Al Dev (Alavoor Vasudevan) <alavoor(at)yahoo(dot)com>, last
update October 23, 1999.

Now, as to a form for application listings, try:
1.)	Name
2.)	Author
3.)	License and cost if commercial
4.)	Website (hyperlinked)
5.)	Download direct link
6.)	Size (??)
7.)	Rating (??) (one to five elephants, maybe, in the tucows tradition?)
8.)	Detailed description, preferably pulled from the author's readme or
website documentation.
9.)	User reviews (??)

Or, just look at Linuxberg, tucows, and Simtel (and whatever the BSD
communities have in the same vein) for ideas of an application listing.
