Forum OpenACS Development: Re: Removing packages from acs-core that we don't use/need
Offering a package repository like Ybos has running here:
on openacs.org (with additional info) might (it would certainly make it more likely that someone pick up an old package, dust it off, and use it).
Other options: add additional information to this page:
https://openacs.org/doc/openacs-4/ or add a little package status box to the individual package's documentation.
Starting with a package status page using ETP would be the first step (a survey if you will), but not the solution.
