Most of what's there is contributed by the developers and heavy
users of the various packages.  I can keep the Xastir info
up-to-date myself but since that's the only one I use (and
contribute code to).  I can't very well do the same for the other
columns.

Feel free to contribute more info for your favorite package.  I
typically update the chart within a few days of receiving such info,
with the occasional "I'm too busy" delay.

Notice the "Exit Strategy" row near the top of the chart...  That's
so people can make educated choices as to which packages to jump
into, and which might cause the difficulties later if they're
abandoned.
