Yes, availability and quality and "focal point" of
efforts.

Yes, I will go through my Elisp and for each defun, ask
myself if it is something I did just because I like it
that way or if it is something others could benefit
from. I think most of it isn't, but I know some is, so
I will do it. When I'm done, should I post it on
gnu.emacs.sources and then someone will decide if it
is? I'm fine with that method and I don't think
discussion will be needed: I did this for myself and I
will continue to use it, so there is no potential loss
(on my part at least :)).

By the way, I configured Gnus to show a short comment
for each group and for gnu.emacs.sources it says "Lisp
and C only" (pseudo-quote) emphatically - is this a
remnant of some glorious past? Because I don't see lots
of people spamming the group with Perl and C++...
