Two important resources presently on v-c.o are the VMOD and Utilities
directories. Any thoughts on what happens to them?
As I understand the way that they work now, they depend a lot on
having a CMS, and there are good reasons for that. Users with an
account can post up their own descriptions and updates about their
stuff, without requiring an editor or editors to do it all the time.
The front-end controls for picking a technical category, maturity of
the development, supported Varnish version, and also for the author to
edit/delete the entry -- would any of that be possible with a site
generated from the repo?
Of course we could replace the directories with straight HTML
generated from the repo and maintained by committers. If someone wants
to add or change something, that too would be a pull request. But I'd
be concerned about the risk of the info going stale, or that
committers will keep their own stuff much more up-to-date than the
contributions from "outsiders".
