    Is it time to set up a Github organization for all things LMS?

    I was wondering whether it was time to set up an organization on Github
    consolidating various aspects of the LMS ecosystem:

    * plugin repositories today are managed on an old Logitech owned
    subversion server, plus some custom script on my own host
    * only I can update that repository file
    * some orphaned plugins are floating around the net, where previous
    owners would be happy to hand off ownership
    * sooner or later LMS code could probably move, too...

    Thoughts?

    Any great ideas for a name? Any volunteers? (I have my ideas for the
    latter of course ;-))

    OMG yes. One place for the latest versions of all the software would be heaven.
    LMS 8.0 + EDO on Debian Jessie
    Touch --> Benchmark DAC3 HGC --> Counterpoint NPS200 MkII + NPS400 --> Meadowlark Heron
    Touch --> Schiit Bifrost 2 --> Eddie Current Aficionado --> Sennheiser HD800 SDR, ZMF Verite Ziricote
    and a third Touch for remote control, and a Radio, and a couple SB3s and a Transporter somewhere

    That's not what I had in mind (but why not, if contributors like the
    idea?). My intention was more to "future proof" things by making LMS
    less dependent on my person only. Eg. right now if there's a plugin
    update, it needs my personal, manual intervention to get the repository
    file updated. That's stupid. By moving some things out of Logitech
    infrastructure we could open up a bit and share the duties.

    Or we could provide a new home for orphaned plugins. Whomever feels like
    contributing could update/maintain them. And they would have a new home
    which hopefully doesn't go forgotten too quickly.

    I think it would be great if everything was in one world.

    If Logitech ever dropped LMS support, would all of the Logitech branding get dropped from the interfacing?

    Pretty sure everyone knows the LMS acronym. Any reason to not just use LMS as part of the organization name?

    Even pCP? "everything" is a big word :-)

    I have no clue. Sooner or later I guess yes.

    LMS as an acronym without the real name might be ok. But to have
    Logitech in the name would be a problem.

    I think this is a great idea. I would love to see a more open org for development.

    I'm happy to help with things like CI pipelines and such to get automated testing/builds working.

    great idea. I can't help with any technology/programing, but I'm happy to chip in money to support any costs of hosting, etc.
