In that case Jeroen's suggestion of seeing http://freegis.org is your
best bet.  You will have to do some trawling through the site to collate
the info you want because I don't think it's summarised anywhere. You
may be in for a bigger job than you realise because there is /lots/ of
open source gis software.  There's plenty of obscure stuff along with
the mainstay apps so you may want to set some discrimination criteria to
make the job manageable.
