Cool. Shame you didn't pick up the suggestion to turn it into a web
page, it means I'll have to do it myself :P Can you please check the
script results, and confirm that the expressions I have quickly put
together actually make sense?

I've added suite::openstack:
Open source software for building private and public clouds.
For admin::cloud-computing, what would be the difference between
admin::cloud-computing and admin::virtualization?
I am not an expert of this field; in fact I waited a bit before
replying, just in case someone else from the list who knows more than me
would give feedback, but it looks like I'll have to do.
