Hi Norbert, hi all,

just some minor comments:

That one does not fit the natural/computer science them.

>   mhs -- Historical mathematics.
>   miller -- Typeset miller indices.
>   nassflow -- Drawing Nassi-Schneidermann diagrams and flowcharts.
>   newalg -- Format algorithms like Cormen, Leiserson and Rivest.

A few more:

  SIstyle -- The SIstyle package.
  alg -- LaTeX environments for typesetting algorithms.
  algorithm2e -- Floating algorithm environment with algorithmic keywords.
  algorithmicx -- The algorithmic style you always wanted!
  algorithms -- Floating algorithm environment.
  pseudocode -- A LaTeX enviromnet for specifying algorithms in a natural
  scientificpaper -- Format a scientific paper for journal publication.
  sciposter -- Make posters of ISO A3 size and larger.

Looking through latexextra I also found a candidate for the games
  skaknew -- Full chess fonts; the MetaFont skak fonts redone in Postscript

>> 3) collection-pdfetex

Does not depend on LaTeX => genericextra or genericrecommended

>         not depend on latex)

IMO pstricks makes more sense.
