    Problem:
    There are tons of repositories.
    Every developer just wants to get discovered.

    So what do they do?
    They make our installer look messy, unorganized, and impossible to navigate. They make random 'categories' that will stick out, most of them are in the wrong place (ie: there's already a category for SMB themes, you don't need to make a category titled 'yourplace.com>SMB THEMES!!1!'.

    Solution:
    Standardization.

    Nobody HAS to do it, but I'm sure that once the developers come to realize that nobody likes the unorganized mess of an 'installer', they'll at least consider it.

    Once we have enough sources that have at least ONE repository that's standardized (yes, you can have two repositories for one sources) we can add all of those sources to a "program" that installs the standardized sources.

    What do you all think?

    I'll change our categorys to the default names that are already used.
    I never thought of this much names. But after I installer AlliPodHax Ultimate Source List I had to think about it.

    (Note: I'm talking about "our" repo: http://repo.itouchable.de)

    That's awesome. I think I'll have a googlepages site up soon for people to add their source.
    If anybody'd like to help me out, I'll need it.

    One person, organizing 80+ sources?
    Oh boy.

    Yeah. Tracking down email addresses is going to be the hard part.
    Oh well. It's a good cause. Haha. I'm fed up with the installer.
