smf(5): Manifest destiny, Round One

I received polite mail this morning reminding me that I have mugs to ship. I got distracted during break, but we'll be boxing up the mugs and getting them to the authors. So, for Round One, here is the set of submitted service manifests submitted to date:

application/informixInformix Dynamic database serverPrasad JampalaUSA
application/mysqlMySQL database serverKeith LawsonCanada
application/oracle/[database]Oracle database controlJoost MuldersNetherlands [Sun]
application/oracle/[listener]Oracle listener Joost MuldersNetherlands [Sun]
[application]/popfile[POPFile mail classifier]Iouri GoussevCanada
[application/print]/cupsCommon Unix Printing systemBoyd AdamsonAustralia
[application/print]/xprintX Window System Print serverPeter ErikssonSweden
[network/ident:pident]pident IDENT daemon Gary MillsCanada
[network/nntp:inn]INN NNTP server Gary MillsCanada
network/ntp:openntpOpenNTPD daemon Todd CarsonUSA
network/[smtp:postfix]postfix SMTP MTA\* Ben RockwoodUSA
network/[smtp:qmail]qmail SMTP MTA Iouri GoussevCanada
network/txpi:tcp]TXPI TCP Hans van MaarenThe Netherlands
[network/xcom:default]CA-XCOM data transportHans van MaarenThe Netherlands

\* Ben's Postfix conversion is very simple, and works if postfix is in root's default path; in contrast, Peter Tribble built a full stack of mail processing atop Postfix in smf(5) a few months back. Plus they both have mugs already.

We're now in the process of assembling all of the manifests we know about at the OpenSolaris smf(5) community. If you sent in a manifest without a URL, it would be preferable to give us a link to it, and to give it a copyright and (OSI-approved) licence. (Send me mail if this appears confusing or is difficult.)

Suggestions for Round Two (beyond PostgreSQL and the other database management systems) are welcomed!

You accidentally swapped me and Ben Rockwood. I'm flattered. ;)

@Todd: I could have sworn I caught that mistake when I previewed it, meaning that I really hadn't had enough caffeine. My apologies. — Stephen

Hmm... I submitted a service for CUPS in the early hours of the morning of July 1, UTC+1000. Maybe I missed the boat :(

@Boyd: You caught the boat; I've updated the table and will get the list of postal addresses updated as well. — Stephen

I noticed that OpenSolaris.org has a list of various manifests, but not the actual packages. In the case of the one by Joost Mulders, his site is no longer online. Any chance you have an archive of the winners some place where we can access them?
