The way I see it, here is how things stand right now: There are dozens of sources. Some of them are app/developer-specific, so they're cool because the author/maintainer of that app can keep us up-to-date on his/her latest and greatest. Some sources are generic repositories, which may or may not duplicate apps/downloads that are already found on other sources, and whose duplicates may not be as up-to-date as another source. There are new sources popping up here and there, and the more sources we add, the longer it takes to refresh those sources -- especially if one of them is down for maintenance or the net is having a hiccup. There are some fine folks here who help maintain nice clean lists here of all of the available sources and what you can find on them, just to try and make things a little easier for folks who may find themselves lost amid the tangle and would like some direction. Their work is greatly appreciated and they are what help make this community a cooler place. But this is only going to grow. More sources will appear, more apps will appear, lists will get longer, sources will take forever to refresh, Installer will continually notify us of updates to apps we already have newer versions of because the update is from a different source that hasn't kept pace with version changes but we don't want to get rid of that source because it maintains some other cool stuff that isn't on any other source, and....... And I think something needs to be done. We kinda need to clean this up here. It was all great and fine when there were few sources and few apps; refreshes were quick and we could always trust what Installer told us needed updating and what the latest packages were. But the community is in rapid expansion. Apps and sources are appearing with greater frequency as more people get on board with the Touch -- developers and users alike. We can't keep going the way we're going in three, six months, a year -- can you imagine the list of sources then? The number of apps? The Touch has barely even passed its first quarter yet and look at all the stuff we've got for it. It's pretty astonishing, really. What we need is a source. A source. The source. One repository, maintained by the community -- the developers, level designers, skinners, everyone -- that will contain the files for Installer, descriptions for the "more info" section in Installer, and anything else that will be needed, where developers or even just users can upload the latest and greatest, all neatly categorized and available to Installer under one source address. Yeah, it's a bit idealistic, but I really don't think it's unrealistic -- on the contrary, lots of people here have shown that they are willing to take on projects of their own to keep the community organized and informed, donating their time as needed to help out where they can, and those folks are awesome. If we can gather these people together to work on a project like tis, we could end up having a single, easily maintained, up-to-date repository that (ideally) contains everything that's available for the Touch, neatly categorized and easy to use. What does everyone think? Good idea? Bad? Any volunteers to get in on this? I am willing to do whatever I can to kickstart and help out with a project like this and I would love to hear from anyone who is willing and able to join in and turn this into a One Source Town. Thoughts, suggestions, whatevers always welcome.
