Ciao Paolo,

1) excellent idea! To Oliviero's and Dimitry's suggestions I
would also add AiiDA, EPW, and BerkeleyGW.

2) If anything, I think it would be great to have *very* prominent in
one single page (maybe already linked from the main page) all the codes
that interface with QE - to show that there is a large community
committed or interfacing with the project. Maybe something like
"Community codes and tools"

This would mean  putting in the same place also Yambo, Wannier90, WanT,
that are now mostly confined to the user manual, in addition to the ones
you put in tools (see below), plus Amulet, quantum-environment,
AiiDA, EPW, BerkeleyGW.

I think it would really show the breadth of applications and opportunities.


ElaStic: written in python, computes elastic constants
XtalOpt: evolutionary/genetic algorithm (no longer maintained)
USPEX: evolutionary/genetic algorithm
PHON: phonon calculation using the frozen-phonon approach
CALYPSO: Crystal structure prediction via particle swarm optimization
NanoTCAD ViDES: Simulation of Nanostructured devices
BolzTraP: calculatin of transport properties.
