Thanks to all for replies!
see notes below

There are a few that I am personally trying to run, with varying degrees of success, but any tool that people want to review from the pool below, for example. Will circulate evaluation sheet to those who want do run something and contact me offlist pls.  At this stage we prioritize publicly funded ones, rather than commercial tools.




I am not adding editors to any list, and again, prioritizing publicly funded. i dont think your tool is?

Yes, thanks! will follow up and ....

"In any case the problem is rather social/cultural/organisational than merely technical." 

so true... for some of us, technology is mainly a mean to solve real world problems in real world context, so any technical issue is, at least in part, determined by social/cultural/organisational issues. This is often forgotten, and technology is done for technology's sake.

Thanks a lot for spreading the word
Even more value would come from this being a public , open, collaborative effort......

I am still working on the evaluation sheet, would welcome thoughts and criticism, so please get in touch  if you are interested
