This sounds good.  It might also be nice if the maintainer had a file of
resources specific to the MUD type.  A list of the homepage, significant
sites, building information, custom additions, important MUD lists,
history, derivatives, etc.

Oooh, not that I don't have enough to do already, but I'll take LP-MUD. 
It's the text MUD codebase I'm most familiar with.  Would this cover all
LP-type codebases?  Would this include just drivers or libs as well?  It
might be nice to be able to create subdirectories....

Perhaps someone on the Skotos crew would be interested in covering DGD,
given their access to the creator. :)

Any information that people would be interested in contributing can be
emailed to me directly.
