Hi Tom and Peter,

thank you for your suggestions. I envy these platforms for having an actual
CMS. I am currently lobbying for funding so that we can build something for
our FLOSS Inventory and I think the positive messages i've received on here
will certainly help.

I would say the main difference between the FLOSS Inventory and these other
lists is that our list applies to larger aspects of digital heritage
including aspects like storytelling, visualization, annotation, and
geo-mapping, etc. This is a big part of Europeana's mission; re-use.

However, the inventory may slant more towards the back-end because a lot of
software I source comes from this list.

@peter I like that you mentioned the idea between application and toolkit.
This is something that I also would like to see for our Inventory. Also it
would be great to make all relevant plug-ins, say for Omeka, visible on the
Omeka landing page. One-stop-shopping if you will.

We would also like to have more reviews but the project that they were done
under has ended thus funding is gone.

I also serve on the DiRT Directory <http://dirtdirectory.org/> Editorial
Board. Has anyone had a look at that list? It's pretty well organized and
enriched. the only problem is that it features payed software as well and
you can't filter just OS.

The folks over at Berkley are working on automatic tool submissions via
Twitter using #dhtools...not sure where this is at so a good reminder to
check-in on that status!

Thanks everyone for the nice discussion! nice to know there are others
working on similar projects and we can share some knowledge.

Regards,

greg
