This template collects all notes of a software together. Some common information is displayed as an infobox. The template is also used by User:TTTBot to extract data for the lists on Software.


Use only one single instance of this template! Don't add multiple ones on translated pages! You don't have to provide all information but try to gather as much as possible to get a nice overview for different perspectives of your tool (e.g. navigation, development, ... aspects).
