It would be good if madb was on mageia.org servers, but right now this is 
only a demo version so I'm not sure we should get users accustomed to the 
current URL.

I sure would like such a highlight on the project, but I'm not sure we're 
ready for it technically either (performance issues, especially on that 

So better copy the result, make it a static page somewhere on wiki or other 

Also, the list of "applications" is not comprehensive, some applications are 
wrongly seen as technical packages currently, so you need the "show all 
packages" filter, which doesn't work on mageia.madb.org currently. I fixed the 
issues that prevented the page from showing when there are many packages on 
a dev instance. It's still slow but at least it works. 
Here is a link: http://dev2.madb.org/package/comparison/application/0
