I think so as well. (See the other mail on this topic before reading on).
The LGDC has been often called the "best resource for Linux game
developers", so it's in a good enough position for this.

PHP is nice for this (btw what I forgot to say in the other mail - As the
LGDC is also hosted by sunsite denmark using the database for both the LGDC
and PPlay is no problem).

Yup. And reviews from the libs' users (i.e. game coders) will do a good job
making the stuff more objective.

Right ;)

Because tomorrow (or so) the LGDC database+PHP stuff will work and make
that entire thing much easier :)

I don't think that's required. Both PFile and PSound are doing well IMHO.
