What about a bookmarks-package ?

Hi !

Just an idea while I was (like so often) search the Web for some 

Why not creating a Debian package that contains a huge html file with
links and some "bookmarks-file" converters for Netscape/IE/lynx etc.

The bookmarks could e.g. contain a folder with all (good) search engines,
with ones for the web,for usenet (dejanews) for mailing lists etc.
Another one could contain links to descriptions of standards e.g. a 
link to a SQL Reference, a HTML Reference, a libc Reference or 
a Perl5 Reference. Yet another could held security-related sites: bugtraq 
archive, rootshell, pgp.net cert.net etc.

Of course the main folders would contain anything related to Linux:
all Distributions, Home Pages of GNU,FSF,GNOME,kernel.org,Linux Resources,
... and all you can imagine.

The fast growing size (:-)) of this file could be handled by splitting it
up to several smaller files that lays in (hum...) /var/www/Debian-Bookmars
or maybe in /usr/share with a link to /var/www - I must think about it a
bit longer.

What is your opinion - would this be a good idea ?

read you,


P.S.: Yes, I would like to be maintainer - if all of you be contributers

         Linux - the choice of the GNU generation !
