IMHO a tentative solution would be to ask the lout mailing list what
people think about such and such contributed software. If a
contributed software has several (satisfied) user i believe it might
be added (as a seperate ftp.cs.su.oz.au:/jeff/loutcontrib-0.1.tar.gz

One thing that is lacking is a list of lout mirror ftp
sites. Australia is far from many places and ftp transmissions are not
good (at least from here, near Paris, in France). Unfortunately i
can't help since i don't have write access to any ftp server
accessible from outside of my organization (CEA).
