I've mentioned this before, but with the community license in place, it might be time to start looking at having a setup that looks more like the Hydra project.  There is the core hydra gem, but all the gem sets built up around it that are part of the larger project live in a common space: https://github.com/projecthydra and are contributed using the same community license allowing the community to use and grow the projects.  It also indicates some level of support to ensure projects evolve with the system.  If most local development is being conceptualized as plugins or gems to be used to enhance the core system, this type of model might work.  Though, I'm sure others may have better ideas.

Hi all,

I spoke to a few people working with ArchivesSpace during code4lib last week, and one of the best ideas that came up was some sort of system for sharing ArchivesSpace projects we are working on at our own institutions. We have a growing community, and many of us are doing some cool things with the system, but it doesn't seem like we are sharing our work as much as we could.

Would others be interested in some sort of online space where we could share our work? Any suggestions on the best way/platform?
