I have already received some good suggestions like:
* an option for listing contrib software;
* an option for ignoring non-free packages when they are documentation;
* an option for suggesting alternative software to something in non-free.

Unfortunately, the alioth page doesn't show exactly where we are. I
think that one of the main reasons is that the subversion repository
manipulations aren't accounted for in the alioth page (only CVS?).
I have tried to contact some people responsible for alioth on irc but
didn't find them on-line and the answers that I got were just to
"ignore" the apparent lack of activity.

Thank you very much. I am also open to any criticism, if it is
constructive. And imaginative suggestions are also quite welcome. :-)
Thank you very much, Rogério.
