At this point I think that we can start to talk about technical stuff
like roadmap, tasks, volunteers recruitment and so on :)
The basic steps, IMHO, can be:
1. Identify which externals to include in the repo (for linux users, the
folder /usr/lib/pd-extended/extra can be a good starting point)
2. Identify which externals need to be compiled (some of them, as far as
I rememer, are not "true" external library, but a pd patch
3. Identify which externals are mainteined/unmaintained, and eventually,
contact the maintainers just to say: "hello, we are creating a shared
repo of externals. Are you interested? and so on..."
4. Prioritize (i.e. most used extensions have the priority).
5. Assign tasks
In that context, a web platform can help to accomplish this preliminary
steps. For example github (that has a project wiki), or Azendoo (free
-and simple!- collaborative project management), to name a few. I'm not
an expert of this platform, but I use github for small projects and
IMHO, Azendoo (or something like that) it can help a lot for
discussions, task management and so on, without flooding the mailing list :)
Here is just my thoughts... any idea/suggestion/alternative are
