How automated would this be? I would suggest that all updates to the listing
are done by yourself (or whoever else may be a PostgreSQL webmaster) and
that any form on the site is merely a mail form. This way all the
'Applications' (as opposed to systems that are specific to a particular user
or site) can be listed in a standardised format, have any links verified and
be generally checked for suitability for inclusion.

I see this section as being a listing of quality applications rather than a
list that anyone can add their two field address book to (no offence toward
any address book vendors intended!).

Suggested fields:

Application Name
Application Function (eg. Financial Ledger, Helldesk etc.)
Application Description
Platform(s) (Win32, Solaris etc.)
Written In (Visual Basic, TCL etc.)
Interface (ODBC, JDBC etc.)
Company Name (optional)
Contact Name
Contact Email
Contact Phone (optional)
