A document which is an accumulation of material would not be a Best
Practices document. To mention specific projects would require the
evaluation of all known projects according to objective criteria. That
is a lot of work. I do not see enough activity in this Community Group
to do that. The previous FSW working group produced a document
containing a list of projects:
http://www.w3.org/2005/Incubator/socialweb/XGR-socialweb-20101206/#Decentralized

I do not think that this list was very helpful. Important projects were
missing and about half of the listed projects are now dead.

My suggestion is to concentrate on compiling Best Practices, not on Best
Products.

Cheers,
Andreas
