Hi Giuseppe

That's a great idea. I'd be happy to join you in setting this up and of course providing my contributions for the utility set, as I don't know of any such resource yet (and thought of something like that myself).

For the brainstorming:

* We should have some style guide on how to write routines for the library: indentation, use of upper/lower case, use of routine header (DETERMINISTIC, NO SQL...), use of COMMENT in header (so we have a consistent way to describe our routines - this would give us sort of an online help for all of the library for free)
* What format should we use for documentation? Should we use a Wiki?
* I thought about SourceForge myself - but is this the right place? When a lot of people start to contribute - how do we organize the routines? We don't want to have them in big files, as most of the people probably just look for one specific routine to solve a problem. So a database driven application to organize our routines would be something nice... (But we'd probably have to develop it ourselves. I don't know if there exists something we could readily use for that.)

I think such a thing could grow very dynamically as soon as it's started - so we should make these points clear before it's almost too late to reorganize things due to the possible success... ;-)
