Some time ago we experimented with having a software information box on the 
relevant UserBase page.  We stopped doing it, because the manual maintenance 
made it totally impractical.  What could usefully be done is to place a link 
to a relevant information page on each app's page - as long as I'm told the 
best place to get this info. :-)  Is it projects.k.o or somewhere else?  To be 
honest, looking at projects.k.o. it isn't obvious that the info is there.
