I think it's cool to know who is doing what. It would be neat to actually
see a report from other module developers who are releasing work like this,
displayed prominently and in an easy to find and follow way. A dedicated
group on g.d.o could be a great option. Plus, this could be cross linked
with the project pages on drupal.org, for instance. This type of publicity
could help people attract more funding for their development work, by
helping people get a better understanding for what they are doing in detail
over time, for one thing.
