What's all that stuff in there about managed and un-managed supposed to describe?  Seems to be somewhat out of date.  I think I would start over with the whole bottom section.

Another thing with this page is, I wouldn't feel comfortable goin g in there and changing anything without knowing the details about each package listed.  I think a different approach is needed that reflects each package more directly.  I'm involved in the GeoMoose project for Example, which is a WebFront for MapServer ( and will be using OpenLayers LIBs in the near future as well).   I would prefer to describe each package separately along with how they interact.  Possibly as a spreadsheet to begin with.

Is this approariate for this page, or in some other ??
