Ah, I didn't realize that the eggs index page as well as each individual egg's 
info pages are all wiki pages.

Also didn't realize that many eggs are in the chicken svn repo.

So, it sounds like the egg index page for a given release is somewhat 
autogenerated at some point early on, and then manually edited as changes

Yes. Thanks for the link.

The eggs index could contain a column with a little graphic that indicates one 
of: chicken svn hosted, github, gitlab, bitbucket, etc.
