Hm. I was just not wanting to make more work later.

Okay, but then it would be nice to know, for instance, if comments posted here, now, would be later collated in, say, a wiki, or equivalent. Think of it is a searchable history, should the archives to this particular list be unobtainable in the proximate future.

Which brings me to a basic point. If the funding will be handled by an established project (which is good), and if the LibTech project is to be mostly composed of a list or two and a wiki/site, what then would differentiate it from other ICT4D sites or projects? I don't mean to be adversarial, at least not unpleasantly so. I mean the question honestly. 

I can see us affiliating with the projects named in the summary or others; to work with simpatico efforts makes sense, especially if the idea is to retain the simplicity of the list and not be lost in ambition. And of course I read the Vision statement—but it could apply to any number of other humanitarian projects, too. 

So, is the project to be a kind of forum for discussions? Ie., a simple thing but one requiring a fair amount of moderation effort.
And plus:
An advocacy site for basically liberal values of social good as understood in terms of information technology?
