I think we already have enough hands willing to do that, Tim. But nobody
has proposed good standards that everyone wants to follow yet. There's no
"apt-get" for things, and the deb format can't really be repurposed for
hardware. I don't think the ".things" zip file format is a good idea; it
has no metadata and just has STL files instead of CAD models. But at the
same time, skdb sort of overdid it a few years ago with the spec:


Which subsequently nobody commented on. Anyway, maybe something simpler
will work.
