We copied the old 2006 apps at the end of November, last year.

You can specify the homepage of your project where you can give
additional information. We would like to encourage to provide detailed
instructions for the users, for instance about installation, in case
the single click install does not work. I don't think that we should
blow the catalog by adding more fields. It is just extra hassle to
fill them in :)

Rating will be added in the future. This is the very first version of
the new catalog :) We welcome feature requests at:

It is an additional service, but not particularly an addition to
garage. Rather like a replacement of the old wiki catalog.
