One thing I've always not quite liked about (X)Emacs is the lack of a central
dump for user-contributed information. There are the two main websites, and
on top of that a *lot* of more or less small sites that all carry more or
less vital information. But they all look different, the Emacs webring hasn't
really helped, and well... 

With rather amateurish means, we've tried to put together something that
goes beyond that: <http://my.gnus.org/>

MGO tries to encourage users to contribute to (in this case) Gnus in
whatever way they can. We've put up a means of easily submitting and
publishing Documentation (see <http://my.gnus.org/HowTos>), Code
<http://my.gnus.org/Lisp>, Wikis
<http://my.gnus.org/Members/robin/Wiki/> and weblogs
<http://my.gnus.org/Members/robin/blark/>. Also, there are screenshots,
announcement facilities etc. You can see the machinery behind it in full
action at <http://zope.org/>.

Ah, and we give away email accounts for Members :-)

Anyway, I think it'd be neat if someone picked up the idea and made
something like this (on a larger scale, this is just a hobby project
driven by 5 people) for both Emacsen. E.g. while I find this thread
highly interesting, it will suck to read it in a webarchive for later
generations. The Zope devel proposals are up on the web and can be
commented on - since ZWikis can be edited with (X)Emacs, it's almost the
same as writing mail :-)
