Do we need this?
- I would be interested not so much in a pure list which, as you indicate, can simply be accessed through the category, but in a comparison like this. It would help people make an informed decision.--Adoniscik (talk) 02:03, 8 January 2008 (UTC)

- Agree to split - There are plans to merged into Comparison of web application frameworks, this split should be done BEFORE the merge is completed. --Hm2k (talk) 15:21, 11 March 2009 (UTC)
I'm involved with the php.js library (not the owner but a main developer), and think php.js has the user base to be considered noteworthy, but I'm not sure whether editing the article is permitted at Wikipedia by someone involved with the project... Thank you... 184.108.40.206 (talk) 08:45, 9 April 2010 (UTC)
- The notability criteria requires multiple independent published sources. And yeah, WP:COI says that you shouldn't edit articles about things you're directly involved in. But if it's notable, someone will probably write an article sooner or later. -- intgr [talk] 18:55, 9 April 2010 (UTC)
- WP:COI doesn't actually prohibit contributions from those directly involved. It says this is a no, no "unless you are certain that a neutral editor would agree that your edits improve Wikipedia". So disclose your conflict and give us the facts.MartinRinehart (talk) 11:19, 26 March 2011 (UTC)
Will the Real Notable Libraries Please Stand Up?
Could we define "notable"?
I have for the second time removed all red links and non-article entries from this list. Please do not add any to the article. There are a few reasons for this:
- WP:REDYES says "Create red links everywhere they are relevant to the context" but the list supplies no context, as would be provided by a paragraph containing the link, or e.g. by the list being in a table or one of a set (List of Tour de France winners for example).
- WP:REDNOT says not to create them in navigation sections such as See also sections, but this is pretty much all see also type links
- most importantly readers should find links useful: red links are frustrating to users who expect the link to navigate somewhere, or if not the linking article to supply enough context so they can work out what should be there
