o       creates a database tracking the packages and their versions
o       compares against a database of packages and their current versions
o       provides support for downloading new versions.

Think something like CPAN only for non-Perl code .

Thanks for any ideas you might have.

status (in progress, closed, etc.), what the problem is, updates entered

GUI would be a definite plus, as would the ability to customize the

If you know of anything that fits this description, commercial or not,
please let me know.  I'm getting a demo of CA-Unicenter from Computer
Associates, hoping that we can just use the pieces we like, but I
haven't seen anything else that looks even close to what we want.  Please
email, I'll summarize & all that.
