Thanks for your suggestions. This should probably help me to address
this topic with much care while designing the db; of course, the
project is aimed at a group of ~40 developers but if the tool turns
out be valuable (in terms of increasing productivity), then may be
others ask for it.
Do you think, mysql documentation would be a good place to start ?

Am not at my workplace now to provide sample of code which takes care
of the initial screen but I think this would not be starting point for
Yes, am planning to use CGI module.
Incidentally, I stumbled upon this mod_perl thing but unable to
understand the adv of mod_perl over CGI.
Second, am still in a dilemma which OS env to use ? Linux or Win.
I prefer Linux as, almost all these are already available in my home
system running Fedora core 5.
