How about changing the description on VersionTracker? It's a bit 
general, isn't it? How about

"TeX installer and much more"

instead of

"Internet-based installer program"

for the quick description.

And how about something like

"With this internet-based installer you can install a Unix based TeX 
system on your Mac. Furthermore it can install many other great 
packages, like GhostScript, ImageMagick or PfaEdit which aren't just 
great for a TeX system.
i-Installer started out as a pure TeX-installer but has now evolved 
into much more."

instead of the very dry and  general description? That way, people 
would more easily recognize i-Installer for what it is. I think I'd 
have skipped i-Installer's entry on VT hadn't I known what it is 
because I'd have thought it's something like InstallAnywhere or VISE 
Installer, i.e. something for developers and not something for end 

What do you think?
