A lot of the time when we are collaborating on here attached patches get quite bloated and people add improvements or change small aspects of what one person has contributed and update it in another post. In so far it hasn’t been that difficult to keep track but I imagine a new user entering now has basically no chance of seeing previous work.
I thought it might be nice for there to exist a ‘discourse git repo’ that people can fork and push and pull into with fairly liberal automatic merging. This way there would be a more tangible record for collaboration. It might also function to collect all the snippets that are being made, rather than have them be massively buried in comments.
