Rooted economy directories

The growing list of rooted economy directories in this blog's sidebar is now a package in CKAN. CKAN is an open registry of data and content packages. You can download the directory list as a CSV file.
We maintain the list using Coopy, an experiment in distributed data collection.

"Have you and a colleague ever ended up with two versions of the same spreadsheet, with a mess of independently-made changes that now need to be merged? Coopy makes that problem go away."

Coopy applies the fossil distributed version control system, normally used for software development, to the problem of data collection.
