Thanks for looking over the idea Robby.
I have found an individual who will volunteer some server space to
accomidate this list which I will maintain.
For those that are interested:
What fields should we require a user to fill in when submitting a
request for a new build so that it will give enough info for packagers
to quickly determine their interest? At the very least I was thinking
App Category, App Name, Link to Homepage and a Short description.
I plan to pull similar data from orphaned builds to allow the two
lists to be merged as one, so please try not to ask for too much.
