I'd like to suggest that the we create an online git repo, that mirrors
the main org repo, for anyone to work on org extensions and fixes, using
one of the online git hosting services (e.g. github, repo.or.cz). I
think this would have quite a few advantages, e.g.

- It would be fun to be able to see what new org projects are in the
  pipeline, and their state.

- Any org users could easily pull work-in-progress projects and help
  with testing and feedback

- It could lead to collaborations on projects that wouldn't otherwise
  have happened, and help prevent duplication of effort

- The process of merging branches from there into contrib/ or org core
  would hopefully be convenient and become well-worn.

- It might be educational for less experienced programmers to see how
  others go about doing things with org code.

Does anyone else think this is a good idea? Would you be prepared to
help get it started?
