Lynn,

Doesn't someone else already have a list? I remember Curt asking me for info when he first added YAAC to the list. On the other hand, I don't know if his list (or Pete Lovell's list on aprs-is.net) has author names and contact info.

AC/KF4LVZ - Please pardon my asking, but are you an APRS client software 
author?  I really need to start a list of which client is authored by 
whom because I can't keep everyone straight.

In YAAC, I used Java I18N (Internationalization) support to allow for restating the text messages in any language (alas, I don't speak any other languages besides English well enough to create the alternate language files). Unfortunately, Java I18N files are not necessarily portable to a program written in another computer language. So how would such standardized files be localized? I'm not trying to shut down your idea (I think it's excellent); I just want to make sure this is accounted for.
