There is an eye-chart at http://wetnet.net/~we7u/aprs_capabilities.html 
that doesn't seem to have author information.

http://info.aprs.net/index.php?title=Software is another list that just 
links each out elsewhere.

I'm thinking about compiling a list of currently active APRS authors so 
that I can quickly remind myself of who is working on what when the 
information isn't included in their tag line.

Lynn (D) - KJ4ERJ - Author of APRSISCE for Windows Mobile and Win32

PS.  They say that memory is the first thing...what was I talking about 
again?  <grin>

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.
