Fedora 13 (current) and 14 (due in a couple of weeks) are good additions to the list.  I'll get started, but would love some help.  I'll start with CentOS 5.5 and the Fedoras.

Things like Perl modules, PHP modules, variants (no-x11), etc. won't be in the list unless there's good reason to include them.

For the FreeBSD bits of the list do we want the pre-built packages or the ports tree?  I can't say I know what's more commonly used (though I use the ports tree myself).
