More information in the Appendix

How about providing more information for each package in
the appendix? Possible additions include:

o Link to Freshmeat project page.

o Link to package documentation, should the FM link not
  lead one to such information.

o Hints related to the package.

o BLFS pages related to the package.

o Alternative software (a larger list than the version
  which might be found on the install pages).

o Link to alternative software project page, documentation,
  or whatnot.

Also, why are the dependency lists in the Appendix? It
seems to me that the appendix is for covering information
outside the scope of the install pages, not for repeating
such information.
