Hi all,

Is anyone currently working on some sort of plugin manager or 3rd party library manager?

I have some ideas that I want to write down in a form of high level design document and share with the group for discussion. If there is already some work done in that direction I'd like to avoid duplication of efforts.

Hi Andrew-

There are a few ongoing discussions about what needs to be included and the backend server design needed in addition to how the software would interact with the data.

I'd be interested to see the design document you come up with.  If you are interested in doing the full implementation, it would be good to see your thoughts in the design document.  If you do write this up, please include it in a format/locate that allows for content-level suggestions such as Google Documents or markdown document on GitLab/GitHub.
