Please see the webpage for comments ...

This first review raises a question, IMHO.

When several packages have more or less the same goal (in the news case,
there are many news grabers and local servers), should their
descriptions include a comparison to the other ones ?

I don't think we can ask the maintainers to compare (and keep this
comparisons up to date) their packages to the similar ones, but I agree
that in some cases, it could be useful for the user.

What do you think ?
