I dont think we should speculate on this too much without giving it a try.
Given the things missing on the extension site (OAuth Logins etc., user
feedback on content) its still a long way to go. FWIW, as noted, the AskBot
site is already capable to host templates, and allows some of the things
missing on the current extension site.

As such, improving the extension website is a good thing. But IMHO we should
also look into what can be done with AskBot starting with evaluating template
hosting. Evaluating means just that: to learn what is possible.

You can pretty much assume that all parts of the LibreOffice always have use
for volunteers. ;)

That is most appreciated! The more volunteers try themselves on working with our
systems, the better we can decide on how to proceed.
