Bits and bobs



A few thoughts:

it's a balance between how much time you're willing to put into
packaging/documenting things vs how broadly it gets used.

Based on these two parameters here are a range of choices I see:

1. Well-packaged/documented: publish via elpa -- easiest for the
user.

2. Check it into github as a first step -- with the goal of
getting to 1 -- risk is  that it might be yet another
moribund/undiscovered blob of code

3. Create a page on the Emacs Wiki with tips and code fragments.
