maybe you have heard of MapStorer - an easy-to-use frontend for managing 
Mapserver mapfiles running on top of a MySQL, PostgreSQL database 
written in PHP and JavaScript. If not, now you have. See mapstorer.org 
for more information including mailing lists and a demo application.

We feel there is a need for such a tool that lets you create a mapfile 
from scratch within a couple of minutes from a variety of data sources. 
Positive feedback at FOSS4G 2006 made us feel we were right with this. 
Last fall, an AJAX-based plug-in system has been implemented around 
which several plug-ins have grown (PostGIS, p.mapper, shapefile, 
database backup, ...). What we still lack is mapfile import. We want to 
get this done till  FOSS4G in September 2007 
(http://www.foss4g2007.org/labs/). The discussion on the MapStorer 
developer list is open. Subscribe here and take part:
