As far as I can tell, the category feature is also very slow.

My opinion is that we need a non-wiki based infrastructure for cataloging,
tagging, commenting on,  and digesting the thousands of ros packages in the
ecosystem as well as hooks into github's and bitbucket's API.

The prototype infrastructure that we used to generate some of the stats for
that talk also hase a built-in web frontend, but I personally don't have
time to play web developer. I think the wiki is a great place for unified
tutorials and generally static information, but I think we need a more
dynamic and structured website to make the packages (and forks of packages)
more visible.

If anyone is interested in building more web infrastructure for the ROS
community, please e-mail Bill (bill.smart at oregonstate.edu) and myself!
