Worst case was when one entry stated 'tbird' for 'thunderbird'. How
this could work is that typing on the keyboard wouldn't be allowed,
except for packages not available in Debian, something like a dropdown
list where all known entries are shown for specific categories.
Unfortunately the list will be looong, for example for text editor,
but one could just type a specific letter to jump to the desired
entry, as is common on the web for stuff like 'which country are you
You could create 10 or so categories, add as many know applicatios as
you can to each, and allow the user to either vote on an existing app
or add his own, this way the next user will have an updated list.
But I agree that after some time the list is going to get huge :)
how long do you want to keep it running ?
