Easy, great support
Incredibly easy to set up - had three sites firewalled and VPN'ed with minimal effort. Developers and user community are very helpful, regardless of your technical background or skill level.
Is it as simple as this...?
Why not enable full-featured, user-specific profiles like Slashdot?
If I want "My Freshmeat" to include only GPL'd software available for Linux, that's what would appear. If commercial games for Windows is my bag, so be it.
This would allow Freshmeat to expand coverage to any platform/licensing model desired while offering additional functionality to its user base.
Seems like a win-win, no?
