2. Click on edit. The code will become an interactive text editor where you can make your changes.

You can help us by adding new entries or maintaining current entries. All entries should be in the form:

 Example 
   = { description =  'Short description of this resource, will appear when hovering over link'
       maintainer  =  'John Smith'
       email       =  'john@example.org'
       base        = 'http://www.example.org/'
       search      = 'http://www.example.org/search?q=%s'
     }

If you're adding a new entry, try to place it in alphabetical order in the list:
